Nobody Here But Us Chickens
by Peter Barnes
April 25, 2008 through May 24, 2008

What a joy to be producing this work by one of the great unsung masters of British theatre. These three short plays look at disabilities, and our perceptions of them, with stunning language, delirious physicality, and raucous humor.

An audacious comedy, Nobody Here But Us Chickens promises to be our most ambitious project yet.

Nobody Here But Us Chickens
Third Rail consistently aims high and nearly as consistently succeeds; they are a polished, talented ensemble that doesn't shy from difficult material. - Portland Mercury

Nobody Here But Us Chickens
It’s an impassioned production, and the company is determined to make it available to everyone with an ASL-interpreted peformance (May 1) and an audio-described matinee (May 4). - Willamette Week

Third Rail has happy "Chickens"
Barnes's plays are zany plays, irreverent plays, plays that in the hands of Third Rail Repertory Theatre's dexterous and accomplished actors yield a hilarious evening of mostly physical comedy. - The Oregonian

"You couldn't ask for a better cast: John Steinkamp, Damon Kupper, Michael O'Connell, Maureen Porter, Valerie Stevens, and Philip Cuomo are a veritable comedy all-star team." - Willamette Week

You may laugh harder than you ever have in the theater. You may laugh harder than you've ever laughed in your life." - Portland Tribune
