Do It Today: Knives in Hens at Studio@620

The Studio@620 presents its last performance of Knives in Hens — a play that’s been dubbed by critics as a modern classic — tonight at 8 p.m.

The emotionally evocative tale, written by David Harrower and directed by Samuel French, takes place in a “pre-industrial, God-fearing nowhere land,” and centers on an uneducated young woman who is trapped by marriage and develops an intense relationship with the village outcast.

Director Samuel French is a freshman directing major at Carnegie Mellon University and a graduate of the Pinellas County Center for the Arts (’10). He has been involved with the Studio@620 as an actor (Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Art) and as a writer (Writer’s Block, This One Night in the Warehouse).

The Studio@620 is a nonprofit arts venue located at 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg. Tickets are $15, $10 for students and seniors. Visit The Studio@620 online at or call 727-895-6620 to purchase tickets or make reservations.
