The UK premiere of a play by Hollywood actor Laurence Fishburne about New York's criminal underworld. Read More >

Riff Raff is the debut play by Hollywood actor Laurence Fishburne.

It’s Halloween, and half-brothers Mike ’20-20′ and Billy ‘Torch’ are holed up in an abandoned crack den on the Lower East Side. They’ve got three kilos of smack, blood on their hands and New York’s biggest drug lord on their tail. With nowhere to turn, Mike calls his old friend from Brooklyn to get them out of their mess. When the man arrives and the night draws in, stories are swapped, loyalties are tested and the bleakness of their criminal lives threatens to envelop them forever.
