A dark and twisted coming-of-age story by the Bruntwood Prize-winning author of Yen.

Hendrix is growing up. Or at least he's trying to. He's sick of his mother and her constant preaching on the virtues of an organic lifestyle. And he's sick of her girlfriend, a twentysomething stunner who winds him up relentlessly. But most of all he's sick of the bullies at school, who think if his mum is gay then he must be too.

In a desperate attempt to prove his masculinity, Hendrix enters a very adult world - but gets more than he bargained for. He meets Luminita, a young girl enslaved in an unbearable life, and their secret friendship grows in snatched moments in a room above a chicken shop.

Anna Jordan's play Chicken Shop premiered at the Park Theatre, London, in September 2014.
