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.
