Cock and Bull Commissions Playwright Megan Breen For New Ibsen Adaptation

Cock and Bull announced this morning they’ve commissioned Los Angeles playwright Megan Breen to create a contemporary adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic play Ghosts titled LECHEROUS HONEY. In this new immersive production premiering at the Berger Park North Mansion this October, Cock and Bull will expand its work of original theatrical experiences, multimedia, and puppetry.

“Ibsen’s work pushed the boundaries of sexuality in his time period. I wanted to work with a playwright who does the same. Megan Breen dives head first into work that is taboo and risk-taking, ” states Artistic Director Chris Garcia Peak.

Playwright Megan Breen found Ibsen’s play a perfect starting point for working with Cock and Bull, “Ghosts boldly exhibits the qualities of my ideal theatrical experience – dangerous, raw and provocative. It is fearless in its exploration of the taboo and relentless in its tackling of the secrets inside of that taboo. Cock and Bull are the perfect bunch of theatre-makers to collaborate with on an investigation of Ibsen’s unearthing of personal/sexual taboos and family secrets.”

LECHEROUS HONEY runs October 22 – November 12th at the Berger Park North Mansion.
