About Book

It's Christmas Day in Stewarton and Irene Gordon's struggling to get in the festive spirit. Her eighteen-year-old daughter has just had a baby, her ex-husband's had a stroke and her eldest is having a breakdown. Even the Dr Who special is disappointing. To compensate, she gets Rab McGuire, a gift-wrapped male sex aid and an escaped chicken that won't be stuffed.

The final chapter of the Stewarton trilogy (The Wall and The Ducky), D. C. Jackson's The Chooky Brae premiered in a Borderline Theatre Company production at the Palace Theatre, Kilmarnock, in September 2010.
