“I’m Bobbie. As in Bobbie Dazzler, my Nan says, although I don’t know who that is. And this is my brother Hench. He’s got a face for radio.”
Hench is 16, Bobbie is 14. They’re home alone in Feltham 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 Jenny shows up.
This is the Australian premiere of Anna Jordan’s masterpiece YEN which poignantly explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own. You can read an interview with Jeremi Campese who plays Bobbie here and see a video teaser here: Yen -Bobbie.
