Fen archiveVal wants more. Becky wants to be a hairdresser. Angela wants to escape. Shirley can't be doing with all the fuss everyone is making. In a world where roles are fixed and choices are few, Fen follows the interweaving lives of different generations of women, and questions our sense of entitlement as to what life should give us. Exploring the relationship between aspiration and expectation, Fen looks at our connection with the work, the people, and the landscapes that hold us together. A community of working women. Grafting, striving, finding their way. First performed by Joint Stock Theatre Group in 1983 at the University of Essex Theatre and subsequently at the Almeida Theatre, on tour, and at the Public Theater, New York, this is the play’s first professional production in London since the original run.
