A man is on a fishing trip and has brought the woman he loves to be with him in a cabin beside a river. But, like the ebb and flow of the water, and the flash and vanish of the elusive trout, the story twists and weaves and at the very moment we think we have grasped and understood the man and woman’s love affair, we find it’s all pulled from our grasp as one reality evaporates and another, even more seductive one, is put before us.
Jez Butterworth’s plays are infused with beautiful, poetic images. In The River, he has created a bewitching story in which the fisherman’s love affair with the secretive trout eluding him in the watery depths is likened to the elusive and transitory nature of human love.
As The River is quite a short play, we are planning a series of ‘Open Mic’ evenings where people can come along for a pleasant social get-together but also perhaps play music or read their own poetry. We would particularly like to welcome new younger audience members to these events. Plans are in the early stages, so watch out for more information.
