River, The at Circle in the Square Theatre
River, The
Circle in the Square Theatre

A remote cabin on the cliffs, a man and a woman, and a moonless night. The River asks whether when we find each other, are we trying to recapture someone we once lost? By Jez Butterworth, the author of Jerusalem, and starring Hugh Jackman.

In a remote cabin above a river, a dedicated trout fisherman tries to hook a woman into a little night-time fishing. But are fish his only prey?
