The River

by Jez Butterworth

8 - 25 September 2021
Director: Terese Maurici

Production Coordinators: Emma Hunt & Melanie Rowe

On a moonless evening, a man brings his new girlfriend to a remote cabin for a night of trout-fishing. But before the night is over, it becomes clear that nothing is as it seems... and as memory collides with desire, the truth becomes the most elusive catch of all.


Described as “beautiful, slippery and unnerving”, the nature of the play and its inherent mystery means that the finer details of its plot and characters resonate long after the production.

Auditions were held in early 2020, the cast listed below had begun rehearsals when WLT had to close due to Covid-19. The play has been rescheduled in 2021, and, to our delight, this talented trio are once again willing and able to resume!


The Man                   Paris Romanis
The Woman              Gabby Llewelyn
The Other Woman    Kadey McIntosh

Note- 80 minutes. No interval

Warning: Strong language
