Knives in Hens is a Scottish play about a young village woman who, despite the everyday ordinariness of her life as a field hand, has an extraordinarily inciteful desire to discover her place in the world.
Through the plays three characters –the Young Woman, her husband Pony William—a ploughman, and Gilbert Horn—a miller, this production of Knives in Hens contemplates their conflicting philosophies and worldviews. Long held superstitions and traditions passionately clash against the beliefs of a new kind of person, openly filled with a humane and insatiable thirst for constant knowledge and the courage to stand alone.
