Knives in Hens
A Paperback edition by David Harrower in English (May 21, 2015)
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.
Knives in Hens is a brutal fable set in a timeless spartan rural community. First staged at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in June 1995, before transferring to the Bush Theatre, London, in November 1995, the play was playwright David Harrower's first professionally produced work. It has been staged in twenty-five countries around the world and is widely acknowledged as a modern Scottish classic.
A remarkable play about the transformative power of knowledge and an emerging consciousness as the world moves from rural to the urban and industrial.
With an introduction by Mark Fisher.
