Gritty Theatre and The Old Joint Stock present
by Anna Jordan
Directed by Ian Robert Moule
Cast: Dominic Thompson, Tilly Farrell-Woodhouse, Demelza O’Sullivan, Blake Heaven.

One dog, two teenage brothers, and a girl from the flat opposite.

Teenage brothers Bobbie and Hench spend their days and nights in mum’s flat in Chelmsley Wood. Home Alone. Streaming porn and playing COD. Mum visits. Occasionally.

Anna Jordan’s Bruntwood Prize winning ‘Yen’ is a hard-hitting, yet engaging and incredibly rewarding exploration of a childhood lived without boundaries, and the consequences of being required to survive on your own and grow up before your time.
