The River

By Jez Butterworth

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

On a moonless night in August when the sea trout are ready to run, a man brings his new girlfriend to the remote family cabin where he has come for the fly-fishing since he was a boy. But she's not the only woman he has brought here – or indeed the last.

A bewitching story from the author of global smash hit Jerusalem.

Press Quotes

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.'

Whatsonstage.com

'One of the best productions of the year... a magnetically eerie, luminously beautiful psychodrama.'

Time Out

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