By David Harrower,Mark Fisher

The village has lied. William has lied. it's not simply because i'm unfit. now not simply because i'm younger and they're outdated. God has given them not anything. i do know this now.

Knives in Hens is a brutal myth set in a undying spartan rural neighborhood. First staged on the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in June 1995, earlier than moving to the Bush Theatre, London, in November 1995, the play was once playwright David Harrower's first professionally produced paintings. it's been staged in twenty-five nations around the globe and is greatly said as a contemporary Scottish classic.

A outstanding play in regards to the transformative strength of information and an rising cognizance because the global strikes from rural to the city and industrial.

With an advent via Mark Fisher.
