  • Programming Policy

    Riverside Theatre is a receiving house, which has also been occasionally home-producing during the last 30 years. Special interests include accessible international work, relevant new translations, physical theatre and quirky, enjoyable re-interpretations of classic plays. It is particularly interested in premiering work and in receiving material that is not playing elsewhere in Northern Ireland, but will also actively participate with the other main regional theatres in the province to jointly schedule interesting material.
