Fen, by J.M. Barrie. Directed by Ria Parry. Produced by Iron Shoes in association with Neil McPherson for the Finborough Theatre and the National Theatre Studio. 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.
