On a moonless night in August when the sea trout are ready to run, a man brings a woman to a remote cabin on the cliff, above the river, where he has come to fish since he was a boy. And then suddenly she is missing. 

THE RIVER is a mysterious and bewitching play from Jez Butterworth, the writer of internationally acclaimed plays Jerusalem and The Ferryman. 

A magnetically eerie, luminously beautiful psychodrama.” —TIME OUT (London)
