YEN.jpg

Australian Premiere

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 explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own. After winning the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting in 2013, Anna Jordon’s Yen has taken stages by storm internationally, including The Royal Court in London and The MCC in New York.
