Unknown Rivers

By Chinonyerem Odimba

Paperback £9.99

Since her ordeal five years ago, nineteen-year-old Nene rarely leaves home. Secure within her mum's embrace, Nene now keeps the outside world securely on the other side of her bedroom window. 

But weekly visits from her best friend Lea start to fill the void and on one unexpected day, when she is finally beyond the walls of her sanctuary with her vibrant, funny, and spirited girlfriends, a long-forgotten spark is powerfully reignited in Nene, one which will change her direction forever…

Chinonyerem Odimba's poignant and life-affirming play Unknown Rivers is a testament to the extraordinary powers of female friendship.

Unknown Rivers is premiered at Hampstead Theatre in October 2019.
