The Carriage House Players (CHP) will open their Fall 2018 season with Yen, a drama by Anna Jordan, on Friday, September 7, at 8:00 p.m. The CHP perform in the Carriage House Theater in the Vanderbilt Museum’s Education Center, located at the Museum, 180 Little Neck Road, Centerport, N.Y.
Other performances will be given on September 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 8:00 p.m. and on September 9 and 16 at 3:00 p.m. Yen explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own.
Hench is sixteen, Bobbie is thirteen. They live alone with their dog, Taliban, playing PlayStation, watching TV; surviving. Sometimes their chaotic mother, Maggie, visits; occasionally she passes out on the front lawn. But when Jenny knocks on the door, the boys discover a world far beyond what they know, a world full of love, possibility, and danger.
