"TEASER COW is extraordinary... Chapman's writing is brilliant... One Year Lease's production of TEASER COW should be the first play you make sure you don't miss in 2010."
—Richard Hinjosa, NYTheatre.com

One Year Lease theater company presents the world premiere of
teaser cow
by Clay McLeod Chapman
directed by Ianthe Demos
Meet an epically dysfunctional family plucked from Greek mythology and dropped square in the middle of Fast Food Nation. In Clay McLeod Chapman’s teaser cow, King Minos is a cattle baron hell-bent on world beef domination. Queen Pasiphaë can’t stay off the sauce. Their daughter spends her days slinging burgers and huffing cow patties to get high. And their son? He’s the Minotaur — a half-man, half-bull monster that only a mother could love.
Toss in a twelve-step program, a couple of severed fingers, and a kid-hating corporate mascot in a plush suit, and you’ve got one deliciously disturbing dark comedy.
