Vincent River Tickets

London Play
Philip Ridley's modern classic Vincent River comes to the Trafalgar Studios for a limited 5 week run
Davey has seen something he can never forget. Anita has been forced to flee her home. Tonight, they meet for the first time... and their lives will change forever. Philip Ridley's modern classic was a huge success when it premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in 2001, and a West End smash in 2007. Thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous by turns, it is now seen as one of the most powerful explorations of hate crime - and society's need to crush 'difference' - ever written.

    I was engrossed throughout the entire performance. Brilliantly acted, excellent script, funny and gut wrenching.

    Shocked how relevant it still is 20 years after it was written.

  • Review Avatar May 21, 2019

    Great story and play! It was feeling that actors feel themselves uncomfortable from the start and just reading the text - there is no characters there. But after some point, they showed that they can - it was brilliant!

    This was one of the best plays I have seen; intimate, brilliant acting and extremely moving. I highly recommend seeing it.

    A stunning two-hander which gripped for most of its 90 mins. A masterclass of acting too. Superbly crafted writing apart from 5 mins towards the end which seemed totally unlikely in an otherwise very convincing story.

    A searing, soaring production. Wonderful writing, wonderful direction, wonderful acting. And it helps us understand lives beyond our own in a gripping, compassionate, moving and often humorous way. I highly recommend seeing Vincent River.

    Very intense! Unbelievable performance.

  • Review Avatar Jun 18, 2019

    Superb writing and excellent acting. Totally believable characters that ooze humour, angst and emotion as you eavesdrop on their conversation, their stories gradually being revealed with genuine feeling right up to the highly charged conclusion.

  • Review Avatar Jun 22, 2019

    Brilliant production. Excellent convincing and powerful performances from both actors, and effective minimal set

  • Review Avatar Jun 22, 2019

    Fantastic. So intense. Great performances. I don’t think I breathed out for 90 minutes- which passed so quickly. Amazing honour to have seen this.
