15 year old Richard has learning difficulties and lives with his restless and destructive brother Polly. When the land they live on is bought by a new landowner, and the electricity supply to their caravan is cut, their already precarious living conditions get even worse.

 

'Chicken' is the debut feature from director Joe Stephenson, based on the play of the same name by Freddie Machin, originally performed at Southwark Playhouse.

 

Independently financed and produced by B Good Picture Company in association with Bold Turtle Productions, the film was shot over 19 days across London and Surrey. It features the debut performance of Scott Chambers as Richard, Morgan Watkins (Kingsman: The Secret Service) as Polly, and Yasmin Paige (Submarine, The Double) as Annabel.
