A Richard Burton Company production.


The Story:

Hench is 16, Bobbie is 13. They live alone in West London with their dog Taliban; playing PlayStation, streaming porn, watching the world go by. Sometimes their mum Maggie visits, usually with empty pockets and empty promises. Then Jennifer, a practical, animal-loving Welsh girl knocks on the door and their lives change forever. 

YEN explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own.
