In a rustic home in Pittsburgh, John and Tom feel their futures tugged in opposing directions by career prospects and family tensions. But Chickens in the Yard, Paul Kruse’s lyrical play that premiered at Quantum Theatre in 2015, is no conventional domestic drama. Echoing every emotional beat in this expansive collage of memories are the lives of the home’s chickens, intense, inscrutable, and sneakily as human as their human counterparts. As the spotlight shifts between man and fowl, Chickens in the Yard scratches at the thin skin of contemporary relationships, with parallel creatures yearning for love and normalcy in a deeply abnormal world

ADJUSTED REALISTS tell theatrical stories about slightly unhinged worlds. Their first production was the acclaimed revival of Nicky Silver's PTERODACTYLS. Other productions includes the world premiere of Stephen Kaliski's GLUTEN! at 59E59 Theaters (NYIT Award winner) and MEMORIAM at FringeNYC. The collective was founded in 2014 and includes Stephen Kaliski, Roger Manix, Maggie Low, Jeremiah Maestas, and Rachel McPhee.
