WEXFORD'S NEWEST theatre group, Raven Theatre will be back on the Arts Centre stage later this month with a production of Jez Butterworth's haunting play 'The River'.

The play will be staged at 8 p.m. on February 18, 19 and 20.

'The River' is the latest play by award winning playwright Jez Butterworth.

It focuses on a nameless male character who has brought his new girlfriend to his woodland cabin for a romantic weekend. The play explores the effect that past relationships can have on the present. It is a reflection on love and truth, on possession and violence, set as a hauntingly poetic piece which will go deep under the skin.

Raven's production features an all-star cast of local talent with Lee Kelly in the lead role while Lauren Corish Wallace and Jessica Walker portray the two strong female characters.

The play is directed by Anna Hayes. Tickets are on sale from Wexford Arts Centre on 053 91 23764 or www.wexfordartscentre.ie. The play is not suitable for younger audiences.
