About the Event
Following the death of her father, Alice returns home to Yorkshire for the first time in 15 years to claim the tenancy of the family farm she believes is rightfully hers. Once there, she encounters older brother Joe, a man she barely recognizes. Joe is thrown by Alice's sudden arrival, angered by her claim and finds her presence increasingly impossible to deal with. Battling to regain control in a fragile situation, Alice must confront traumatic memories to find a way to restore the farm. The river as a refuge, and as a means/attempt to wash away the physical and emotional trauma of past events. Emotions can be like a river, where you can be enveloped and supported or become overwhelmed and drown.
