The writing of Jez Butterworth is unsettling, engrossing and very, very thought provoking. As we delve deeper into the world of THE NIGHT HERON, we are discovering such poetry beneath its brutal exterior. The characters of this story are compelling and funny, even as they grasp for a lifeline to pull them out of the muck of their everyday lives. Please join us as we inhabit the fens of Cambridgeshire and explore the fuzzy line between truth and fiction, appearance and reality.
The sighting of a rare bird has brought attention to the remote fens of England where two men, recently unemployed and being blackmailed for a horrible secret, struggle to survive in a broken cabin. One of them, Wattmore, is recreating an iconostasis, a vast painting of saints, which dominates the stage as both men, their lodger, and those they are running from all seek their own kind of salvation.
Contains adult themes and nudity.
