The Curators’ timely revival of Philip Ridley’s modern masterpiece Vincent River debuts at Christ Church, Brisbane’s newest, inner-city, indie theatre venue for 13 performances only.
The dramatic tension of this 80-minute, taut, two-hander ramps up as Davey’s account of events is subjected to the devastating and unrelenting logic of a grieving mother’s scrutiny. Seeking comfort, absolution, understanding, and bound together by the memory of Vincent, these two accuse, excuse, plead and bear witness.
Making the occasion even more note-worthy will be the debut of Brisbane’s newest indie theatre venue (and TCT home), Christ Church. This beautiful, historic, richly-timbered space is the ideal setting for socially-distanced playgoers to enjoy, once again, the intimacy of live theatre.
