|Ron May and Austin Kiehle|
"a proactive and thought provoking piece. Part black comedy, part character study it is a riveting comedy and Stray Cat Theatre's production has superb performances, excellent direction, and impressive creative aspects. Austin Keihle is nothing short of miraculous. A firecracker of a production. An intense, funny play and Stray Cat's production of it is quite a winner." -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway
"Stray Cat Theatre comes up with another off-center winner in the hysterical “dark” comedy “Year of the Rooster” by Eric Dufault. ...a bizarre comedy that leaves audiences guffawing wildly. Peck’s rapid-fire, split-second comic timing staging makes “Year of the Rooster” the wildly funny black comedy it must become to work. There isn’t a misstep anywhere in “Year of the Rooster” " -Chris Curcio, KBAQ
"The protagonist is a not-very-lovable loser named Gil Pepper, played by Ron May in a rare (and always welcome) turn in the spotlight. Kiehle essays this role with a perfect blend of human and animal quirks, cocking his head in single-minded malevolence. Equally compelling is Louis Farber, It's funny, but it's not merely funny. In fact, after his first terrifying turn in the ring, Odysseus emerges as a sort of tragic hero, spitting his defiance at a cruel universe like Captain Ahab cursing Moby-Dick. And that's what makes this play so provocative." -Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic
