Based on a true story, this new piece of gig theatre is a distinctly female story of motherhood, survival, and intergenerational cycles of abuse. Chickie is a woman divided. She is torn between her desire for freedom and her responsibilities as a mother. She wants her husband's undivided love but must grapple with him pulling the family into the illegal drug trade of the hippie movement. Set during the turbulent 60s and 70s, this one-woman show combines intimate storytelling, dark humour, and live music to tell a truly incredible story.
