The River is a bewitching story by British writer Jez Butterworth, author of the global smash Jerusalem. On a moonless night, a nameless man whisks his new lover away to the remote family cabin he’s been coming to since he was a boy. He wants to go trout fishing in the darkness of the new moon and he wants her to join him.
But perhaps she is not the first woman he has brought here. As the mystery deepens, intimacy and intrigue abound and the sea trout are ready to run.
Playwright and screenwriter, Jez Butterworth is known for works which toy with the darker side of human nature. In addition to Jerusalem, his plays include Mojo, The Night Heron, The Winterling and Parlour Song. He wrote the screenplays for last year’s hit films Spectre and Black Mass, and has won numerous awards for his work, including the E. M. Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
