A remote cabin on the cliffs, a man and a woman, and a moonless night ...

"At dawn I went back to the river, and I took off my clothes and dived in the freezing water. I searched and searched but it was gone. But when I surfaced, I was holding something. Something else"

The River is a bewitching new play from the critically acclaimed author of Jerusalem


'Bewitchingly strange - watery and wild but deftly crafted' ~ Evening Standard

'Strange, eerie, tense ... Butterworth possesses a singular talent' ~ Guardian

'Teasing, haunting and hushed ... this subtle, troubling piece is likely to nag away in the memory' ~ Telegraph

'As taut as a wire and as tense as a thriller' ~

'A magnetically eerie, luminously beautiful psychodrama' ~ Time Out

'A delicately unfolding puzzle... all of it is wrapped in marvellous language ... extraordinary' ~ The Times

" ... a piece of gorgeously sensitive writing, utterly beguiling in its subtle deconstruction of the way we conduct ourselves in relationships - the facades erected, the lies told, the declarations made, the pasts conveniently ignored ... a play of luminous beauty, hauntingly affecting" ~
