Since 2013 Rive has left its its mark with theatre productions that span from ambitious new writing to UK premieres of international work . Rive is currently working in collaboration with the Michael Grandage Company, Arts Council England and has previously been supported by Unity Theatre, SA/UK and Room One.
We work closely with a team of collaborators including Movement Director Jane Gibson (Cheek by Jowl, Royal Opera House), Set and Costume Designer Louie Whitmore (English National Opera, The Barbican), Playwright Isley Lynn (The Bush, The Bunker) and many more to create form pushing theatre.
RIVE was founded by producer Zoe Robinson, director and writer Oliver Dawe and actor Michael Edwards.
We are always on the look out for new and exciting projects and to work with a wide range of artists , so please get in touch!

Two clowns shoot the breeze, drinking bourbon and playing cards. While hunting the elusive nine of diamonds, they casually dissect capitalism, sea-lions, western culture, fishing, genocide, you know… stuff like that.
Sam and Bob are not so much waiting for Godot, nor are they waiting for the audience to keep up. Their window on the world is one of menace, hilarity, disappointment and improbability, all delivered with a magnificent high-octane comic brio.
Anarchic and surreal, this delightful and confusing satire surprises and provokes in spades… or the nine of diamonds…
