“I’m Bobbie. As in Bobbie Dazzler, my Nan says, although I don’t know who that is. And this is my brother Hench. He’s got a face for radio.”

Hench is 16, Bobbie is 14. They’re home alone in Feltham with their dog Taliban; playing PlayStation, streaming porn, watching the world go by. Sometimes their mum Maggie visits, usually with empty pockets and empty promises.

Then Jenny shows up.

YEN poignantly explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own.

In the careful hands of New Ghosts' Director Lucy Clements, and with an incredibly talented cast including Ryan Hodson (Blackrock La Boite Theatre Company), Jeremi Campese (Oedipus Doesn’t Live Here AnymoreMothIntersection Chrysalis, ATYP and DNA KXT bAKEHOUSE), Meg Clarke (The Chapel Perilous New Theatre, Servant of Two Masters and Measure for Measure Sport For Jove, Away Lambert House), and Hayley Pearl (Abducting Diana New Theatre, King Lear  Seymour Centre, All Saints and Cops LAC), YEN is set to be a highlight of the 2018 KXT season.
