Knives in Hens by David Harrower

The village has lied. William has lied. It is not because I am undeserving. Not because I am young and they are old. God has given them nothing. I know this now.'

A dream-play, a thriller, an old-fashioned love triangle meld in this unsettling tale about the constraints and liberating possibilities of language, and a journey from ignorance to knowledge in a nameless young peasant woman.

A modern Scottish classic, David Harrower's intense rural drama was an immediate critical hit when it was first staged at the Traverse Theatre in 1995, heralding the arrival of a stunning new talent. It is the most performed modern Scottish play internationally and has been staged in twenty five countries across the globe.

Designed by the team on Lyceum's Bondagers, winners of the CATS Award for Design 2014/15.
