Theatre Fans Finding Chicken and Biscuits to Their Taste

You still have chances to see the Queens Theatre’s production of Chicken and Biscuits, a hilarious comedy by Douglas Lyons which wowed the audience last weekend at the New York State Pavilion.

The family of Bernard Jenkins is gathering for his funeral at their church in New Haven. New pastor Reginald is nervous about delivering a eulogy worthy of the patriarch. His wife Beanetta prays for the strength to deal with her feisty younger sister Beverly. Bernard’s grandchildren La’trice, Simone (recently dumped by her fiancé) and Kenny (whose boyfriend Logan is getting a frosty reception from some of his relatives) have their own issues. But the family is managing to put on a united front until it’s revealed that Bernard had a third daughter, Brianna, whose dramatic appearance in church plunges the funeral into chaos.
