'And the next day I went back to the river, and I took off my clothes and I dived in the water, and I looked for the fish, and I couldn't find it, but when I surfaced, I was holding something.
Something else.'

A remote cabin on the cliffs, a man and a woman, and a moonless night.

The River is a bewitching play from the writer of the international smash-hit Jerusalem and Sky TV's absolutely bonkers Britannia.

Reviews of previous productions of The River:

“The River is subtle, sleek and dark. Here is a sense of the mysterious and of kinship with others long gone. It is perhaps about time and eternity, about that spot on the river that, while always the same, is always changing. A wonderful play, glinting and elusive as a fish.” 
Sarah Hemming, Financial Times

“The River is like a subtly crafted piece of chamber music. It is teasing, haunting and hushed. It is also damnably difficult to write about, as there is a mystery at its heart that I must not reveal.” 
Charles Spencer, Telegraph
