Knives in Hens

Multi-award winning director Yaël Farber brings her distinctive style to a tense, modern classic.

17 August 2017 – 7 October 2017

"I have no name for the thing which is in my head. It is not envy. It is more than envy. It does not scare me. I must look close enough to discover what it is."

This Autumn, David Harrower’s haunting and poetic thriller Knives in Hens comes to The Donmar Warehouse for the play’s first major London revival since its premiere in 1995. 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.

Knives in Hens shows at The Donmar Warehouse 17 August - 7 October 2017.
