A thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous exploration of hate crime and society's fear of ‘the other’. "Ridley's best play" – Time Out
In Brussels for a strictly limited run!
Davey has seen something he can't forget. Anita has been forced to flee her home. These two have never met. Tonight their paths cross with devastating consequences.
Thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous by turns, Vincent River explores the classic Ridley themes of loss, sexual identity, the family as a destructive force, East London and the redemptive power of storytelling.

Reviews from previous productions of Vincent River
“.....holds the audience in a tight grip for the entire 90-minutes. It deliberately never lets us relax, so that in the end when the penny finally drops you're left speechless - you sit there not knowing whether to clap, cry or crumble. This is a rare piece of theatre - simply beautiful." — Broadwayworld
”Ridley scatters poetic fragments throughout, like a trail of bread-crumbs leading to the supposed safety of home...a crucible in which everyday secrets smoulder.” — The Times
“Blazing... even as the play emphasises how much of life is wasted, there is something exhilarating here.” — The Sunday Times
“Philip Ridley’s devastating two-hander has lost none of its glinting edge ...his writing is among the very sharpest in British theatre.” — Time Out
“Terrific...molten grief and self-recrimination...never lurid or gratuitous.”
— The Independent
“Finely shaded study of grief...you can’t take your eyes off it.” — Sunday Express
