We are pleased to announce that on November 13th the play "Knives in chicken" at the Ivan Franko National AcademicTheatre will be broadcasted live on our Youtube channel. 

Knives in hens is a play about a love triangle set against a pre-industrial landscape. First staged at the Traverse Theatre in 1995, the piece was David Harrower’s first professionally produced work. It has since then been staged in 25 countries around the world. 

The director of this first Ukrainian version (talented Olga Turutia-Prasolova) was selected as part of the British Council’s annual theatre programme, and the new production will become part of the Ivan Franko National Academic Theatre’s programme for 2015/16.

Knives in Hens premiered at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh in June 1995, and transferred to the Bush Theatre in London a few months later. It was David Harrower’s first professionally produced play, and has since then been produced in London, Berlin, Scandinavia, Austria and New York. Other plays by David Harrower include A Quiet Night In, the libretto for the opera Cat Man’s Tale and an adaptation of John Wyndham’s novel The Chrysalids.
