The Hope River Girls – On Tour

See the brilliant Amy Kennedy in The Hope River Girls, a reconceived version of Groupwork ‘s multi-award-winning 2019 debut, The Afflicted. 

Hope River, upstate New York. A group of 24 schoolgirls begin behaving strangely and mirroring each other. Is there something in the water, in the soil or something much darker? Inspired by real events, The Hope River Girls combines explosive choreography, video and text to examine how something as natural as teenage girls coming of age can become wholly unnatural and a subject of national scrutiny.

This new work is commissioned by Imaginate, supported by Tramway and funded through the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund.

Byre Theatre, St Andrews 29 April
