YEN by Anna Jordan
September 27 - October 13, 2018
Kings Cross Theatre
Description“I’m Bobbie. As in Bobbie Dazzler, my Nan says, although I don’t know who that is. And this is my brother Hench. He’s got a face for radio.”
Hench is 16, Bobbie is 14. They’re home alone in Feltham with their dog Taliban; playing PlayStation, streaming porn, watching the world go by. Sometimes their mum Maggie visits, usually with empty pockets and empty promises.
Then Jenny shows up.
YEN poignantly explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own.
