Anita flees her home, haunted by grief and shame. Davey has witnessed something he can never forget. Tonight their paths will collide and their lives will change forever.
Thrilling, heart-breaking, and at times darkly humorous, Philip Ridley’s powerful play examines the things we broadcast about ourselves and the things we strive to hide. Hate crime, prejudice and the redemptive power of storytelling come together in Ridley’s tense game of cat and mouse set in London’s East End.
This modern classic proved to be a huge success when it premiered in 2000 and was a West End smash hit in 2007 & 2018. The multi award-winning playwright, Philip Ridley’s plays have become synonymous with some of the greatest pieces of contemporary theatre in the last century. Vincent River is now seen as one of the most powerful explorations of hate crime ever written.
