At Edinburgh Airport, a toy plastic chicken is suspected to be a bomb. A woman is screened for domestic radicalisation, while her interrogators decide to perform violent and radical act of their own.  Based on a true story, Toy Plastic Chicken is a blackly comedic exploration of degradation and revolt.

Presented in association with the Traverse Theatre.
