Knives in Hens is a brutal fable set in a timeless spartan rural community "An outstanding new Scottish play, David Harrower's Knives in Hens is set in a God-fearing, pre-industrial world and deals, passionately and intelligently with a woman's discovery of a language that corresponds with her feelings...A remarkable debut" (Guardian) Knives in Hens received its premiere at the Traverse Theatre Edinbuirgh in June 1995 and transferred to the Bush Theatre in London in November 1995."David Harrower's remarkable debut as a professional dramatist creates a haunting, poetic and entirely individual world of its own. I have never seen a play quite like it...You leave the theatre in no doubt that you have watched one of the year's most heartening and accomplished debuts. Harrower already seems like a writer built to last." (Daily Telegraph)
