Two aftershow discussions announced for the acclaimed West End transfer of Vincent River

TWO aftershow discussions have been announced for the acclaimed West End transfer of Philip Ridley’s Vincent River, which runs at Trafalgar Studios until June 22, 2019.

Both are free to that evening’s ticket holders to attend.

The first, on June 4, hosted by Terri Paddock of Stage Faves, will discuss issues in the play and the dramatic rise in hate crime.

Since 2014, attacks on London’s LGBT+ community have almost doubled, according to figures from the Metropolitan Police. Will Mayrick was a victim of hate crime on the Tube in October 2017, choked and threatened with a knife and being forced by his attackers to apologise for being gay. He now hopes that sharing his story will help other homophobic and transphobic attack victims to come forward.

The panel also features Emma Miller-McCaffrey, Community Engagement Manager from Diversity Role Models, who create safe spaces where young people can explore difference and consider their role in creating a world where we all feel accepted.

The second discssion on June 12 will feature the production’s award-winning producer Danielle Tarento in conversation with playwright Philip Ridley, discussing Vincent River and his other works.
