RIVER DITTY
World Premiere

April 20 – May 6
Virginia Rep’s November Theatre
114 W Broad St.

Written by Matthew Mooney Keuter
Directed by Nathaniel Shaw
Produced in partnership with Tony and Olivier Award-winning Glass Half Full Productions

Keuter’s lyrical Southern drama sweeps us from New Orleans’ Storyville district, up the mighty Mississippi, into the woods of Arkansas. Pursued by their dangerous past, Arlo and Sunshine set off on a journey of self-determination, finding love in the most unexpected of places. This American adventure skillfully weaves many of today’s most pressing social issues into a turn of the twentieth century folktale, challenging a new generation to break away from the hatred, violence, and bigotry passed down through family lines.

Approximately 2 hours with intermission.

This production contains intense violence and adult themes/language.
