Anna Jordan's Bruntwood Prize-winning play, Yen explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own.
Hench is sixteen, Bobbie is thirteen. They live alone with their dog Taliban, playing PlayStation, watching porn, surviving. Sometimes their chaotic mum Maggie visits; occasionally she passes out on the front lawn. But when Jenny knocks on the door the boys discover a world far beyond what they know, a world full of love, possibility and danger.
Yen won the 2013 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, and was first performed at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in 2015.
