Louise Jameson and Thomas Mahy star in Robert Chevara’s acclaimed production of Philip Ridley’s Vincent River.
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.
Philip Ridley’s modern classic was a huge success when it premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 2001, and a West End smash-hit 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.
I consider myself lucky to have seen this production which combines the words with fantastic staging and superlative acting to produce a definitive version of Philip Ridley’s awesome play. Review by Terry Eastham
