Anna Jordan’s 2013 Bruntwood Prize winning play examines a childhood without boundaries or supervision. A brotherhood governed by hardcore pornography and Call of Duty marathons. For Bobbie and Hench their caged apartment is their sanctuary. Abandoned by society the brothers hide from responsibility and live without authority. It’s their apartment, their rules, their world. Then Jenny shows up.
Nurture? Nature? Neglect? Yen challenges the status quo and gives the forgotten a voice. When parents are absent how will children develop? Educated by the internet what do we perceive to be real? Without authority what does our behaviour become? Anna Jordan’s dynamic play balances heart breaking hardship with breath taking tenderness.
