The Moor

by Catherine Lucie

Old Red Lion

6 Feb-3 Mar 2018

Rive Productions works again with director Blythe Stewart (director of Skin a Cat by Isley Lynn) to bring exciting new writing to the London stage

On the moor, nothing is what it seems. Things go missing. Things seem...different.

Bronagh has lived right at the heart of the moor for as long as she can remember. But recently she has started having the same dream over and over again - with the voices and the whispering. Is it trying to tell her something?


When a boy vanishes, Bronagh has to tell someone what she suspects, entangling herself and her boyfriend in a murder investigation. But how can anyone find the truth when the ground keeps shifting?


The Moor is a tense psychological thriller, part domestic tale, part folk tale, that pits Bronagh against her own past and present, dragging her, her baby daughter and those closest to them into something deeper than the marsh on the moor.

Frau Welt

Hackney Showrooms

4-21 Oct 2017


by Peter Clements and Oliver Dawe

Rive's director Oliver Dawe is about to open his new show at the Hackney Showrooms where he is an associate artist. We can't wait to see it!

The infamous, international shape-shifter Frau Welt tells her story for the first and last time in this genre-busting new play.

In anticipation of her retirement, join the cult of Frau Welt worshippers to experience the egomaniacal Midas touch of this grande dame of the theatre. From Weimar Berlin to Broadway stardom, her secret is finally exposed.

Unique in form, this one (wo)man play places the traditions and tropes of drag cabaret straight into the heart of a narrative-led drama.
