Description

Brutal, heart-breaking and often hilarious, Yen by Anna Jordan explores the relationship between nature and nurture. Bobbie and Hench are home alone in a squalid flat in Feltham, playing PlayStation, streaming porn, watching the world go by. Sometimes their mum Maggie visits, usually with empty pockets and empty promises, but life goes on. Then Jenny shows up. A stunning play that explores how two boys, who have been forced to grow up alone in a world of violence and poverty, experience affection for the first time. How do they react to it? It’s shocking, it’s sad, it’s unmissable.
