Stage Right…or Not with Michele Willens: Knives, Hens, Homeless

Knives In Hens

Written by David Harrower
Directed by Lies Pauwels

In a pre-industrial landscape, an unsettling and threatening love triangle emerges between the young woman, the ploughman and the hated miller.

As the young woman journeys from ignorance to knowledge, her liberation is found through language and her need to name things to understand their place and hers in the world.

Based on true stories, The Bench, set in urban decay and rubble, explores the emotional heartbreak of five homeless characters and the catastrophic hysteria surrounding AIDS in the 1980s. The sparse set is accented with hand-drawn imagery, from Daphne Arthur’s graphic novel adaptation of the play, and audio design is by world renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh.
