The River & the Mountain

Written by Robert Alan Evans
Directed by Amelia Sears
Performed by our final year Foundation Professional Acting students in The Sainsbury Theatre

Helen is greeting a world expanding into new hemispheres, while Alice looks for signs of growth in the earth. Robert Alan Evans' beautiful epic drama follows a once inseparable couple as they set out on separate journeys through an increasingly disrupted world: all the while yearning to find their way back to one another.

Evans is a writer, director and devisor who has written extensively for young people and co-created several dance pieces. His theatre includes The Woods, A Girl in a Car with a Man, Aruba, The Voice Thief, Caged, Pondlife, Mikey and Addie, The Dark and Kappa. His adaptations include Kes, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Pobby and Dingan and The Sleeping Beauties.

Content Warnings: naked flame and sexual content.
