Vincent River starring Louise Jameson and Thomas Mahy to Transfer to Trafalgar Studios
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 Hampstead Theatre in 2001, and a West End smash at Trafalgar Studios in 2007. This production was seen at London’s Park Theatre in 2018. Thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous by turns, its now seen as one of the most powerful explorations of hate crime – and society’s need to crush ‘difference’ – ever written.
The production will run from Thursday 16 May to Saturday 22 June.
Louise Jameson played the iconic role of assistant Leela in Dr Who opposite Tom Baker in the Seventies. She later starred in Tenko, Bergerac and EastEnders. In a 40-year career, her first love, the theatre, has seen her on stage at the National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company, amongst many others. Louise was nominated for an Off West End Award for her performance in Vincent River at Park Theatre.
Thomas Mahy graduated from Drama Centre, London in 2017. He was also nominated for an Off West End Award for his performance in Vincent River at Park Theatre, which was his London professional debut.
Producer Danielle Tarento said “Having produced the 20th anniversary production of The Pitchfork Disney back in 2012, I am delighted to be returning to Philip’s work and transferring Vincent River
to Trafalgar Studios.”
