Knives In Hens

Previews from 7 October 2017

Donmar Warehouse

A ploughman and his wife live a simple existence in a pre-industrial time, until the hated local miller ensnares them in a struggle of knowledge, power and attraction.

David Harrower’s haunting and poetic thriller established him as one of the UK’s leading contemporary playwrights.  Multi-award-winning director Yaël Farber brings her distinctive style to this tense, modern classic. They will be joined by Christian Cooke (Where The Heart Is) as Pony William, Judith Roddy (The Fall) as Young Woman and Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds) as Gilbert.
