Chicken and Biscuits is a new comedy filled with heart, soul and a little bit of shade, by composer-playwright and actor Douglas Lyons (Beautiful). The production opened at Queens Theatre on February 28th and runs through March 22nd. The play is about an attempt by two sisters to put their sisterly differences aside to bury their father, Bernard. All is well at the funeral until it’s revealed that Bernard had not just two daughters, but three. Wig pins loosen, as truths emerge, leaving this African-American family to confront their skeletons head on; naturally with lots of love, shade, and prayer along the way.
