Inspired by the majestic Murray River, The River at the End of the Road is the culmination of a two-year collaboration between HotHouse and Australia’s finest indoor/outdoor theatre company, Sport for Jove. Written by Caleb Lewis and directed by Damien Ryan, The River is an epic ‘Huck Finn-style’ adventure … with a twist.

Flo and her dad live alone on the edge of the river. With Mum gone and Dad busy operating the ferry, Flo dreams of adventure, little realising how close it lies. Every twenty years when the river is at its lowest, a huge festival is held in the dry riverbed for a night and a day. Absent pets return home and families reunite, as the living and the lost come together for one last time.

But when Flo fails to find her mother and the river starts to rise, she and a newfound friend strike out for the opposite shore, looking for answers – as her desperate father searches for a way to bring her safely home.

The River at the End of the Road is a rare large-scale production developed for Albury-Wodonga audiences, bringing together six actors from the professional company of Sport for Jove, and HotHouse’s own Studio Ensemble.

“… marvellous entertainment from one of our finest directors and a terrific company.”
