A ploughman and his wife live a simple existence in a pre-industrial time until they, along with the hated local miller, are drawn into a struggle of knowledge, power and attraction.
David Harrower's haunting play established him as one of the UK's leading contemporary playwrights. Multi-award-winning director Yaël Farber brings her own distinctive style to this tense, modern classic.
Alongside every Donmar production, we run Open Workshops designed to give members of the public of all ages a unique insight into the process of theatre-making. These Open Workshops are not targeted at professional actors or theatre-makers, but at members of our audience interested in learning more about the Donmar’s rehearsal process.
Join us for a Knives in Hens Open Workshop on:
Wednesday 20 September, 5.00pm-7.00pm
Saturday 23 September, 11.00am-1.00pm
