Nicolette has invited her best friends in the world, Em and Caro, over for dinner in her upper west side apartment, but it’s not until the dishes are cleared and another bottle of wine is opened that she reveals she has a secret agenda...

A new opera by Erin Hoerchler and Andrew Strano, CHICKEN/EGG was presented Off-Off Broadway at the GMTWP Black Box Theater as a part of the American Opera Project's 'Losing Control'. One of the eleven 15-minute premiere operas, all inspired by the historic and current struggle for reproductive rights, on the centennial of the incorporation of the American Birth Control League (now Planned Parenthood).

The entire program is available for streaming with the American Opera Project
