Uncle Rooster by Tami Canaday is both parable play and fantastic spectacle, warning of the reality of torture and community erosion as seen through the lens of a children’s fable. The tale takes place in the town of Lulu’s Burg with a cast of characters such as Uncle Rabbit, Uncle Rooster, Leon The Mule, Faith The Dog, Winny The Fox, and Mrs. Fennel The Hen.
