THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG – A POLITICAL SATIRE SCRIPT

[ad name=”Tweet”]

The play is set at a court hearing of a man from rural Victoria who has been charged with sedition for publishing remarks on the internet that are deciphered as supportive of Al Qaeda. The man’s defense is that he did not publish the remarks but that his chicken had laid an egg on his computer keyboard which caused the random configuration of letters to be posted on the internet. Courtroom drama erupts as accusation fly about who really posted the comments, the defendant, the chicken…or the egg.
