“Knives in Hens” tells the story of an unsettling and threatening love triangle as it emerges between the young woman, the ploughman, and the hated miller set in a pre-industrial landscape. 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 how they fit into her world. “Knives in Hens” is a remarkable play about the transformative power of knowledge and an emerging consciousness as the world moves from rural to the urban and industrial. 

Director - Jordan Davis
