Louise Jameson and Thomas Mahy star in Robert Chevara’s acclaimed production of Philip Ridley’s Vincent River.
Philip Ridley’s modern classic was a huge success when it premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 2001, and a West End smash at Trafalgar Studios in 2007. This year, it returns to Studio 2 as a new production direct from the Park Theatre.
Thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous by turns, it is now seen as one of the most powerful explorations of hate crime – and society’s need to crush ‘difference’ – ever written.
Vincent River is booking from 16 May 2019 until 22 June 2019 at Trafalgar Studio Two, London.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
Davey has seen something he can never forget. Anita has been forced to ﬂee her home. Tonight, they meet for the first time… and their lives will change forever.
