YEN by Anna Jordan

presented by New Ghosts Theatre Co


OCTOBER 2018 | Australian Premiere

“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.
