The thrilling and heartbreaking play Vincent River, by award-winning playwright and author Philip Ridley, has been relocated to Manchester – the city where it is to receive its regional premiere next month.

Yet Another Carnival and Hope Mill Theatre present Vincent River by Philip Ridley and directed by John Young from Tuesday 27 February to Saturday 24 March 2018 at Hope Mill Theatre.

This searing modern classic, which premiered in London at the Hampstead Theatre in 2000, takes aim at homophobia and hate crime with breathtaking honesty.

 Author Philip Ridley said: “I’m so thrilled and excited that Vincent River is being brought to life, and relocated to Manchester, for its regional premiere at Hope Mill Theatre. It’s the perfect home for the play.”

Vincent River slides under the surface of fear, hatred and love. 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.
