Very early one Sunday morning Philippe and his mother Myriam wake up at the same time. Set over a 48-hour period, told in two acts split between the city and the suburban countryside, River Bed is an emotionally acute play about the yearnings and impulses that unsettle our familiar reality.

Authorial statement:
“There is a kind of all-consuming flame some people are drawn to, leaving others to tend unwittingly to their ashes.” – Éric Noël
