RAaW Theatre
In the beginning RAaW was passionate about staging big productions with an impact and mounted three very different original musicals ranging from the dystopian future to film noir to a simple love story. The recession hit in 2008 and we welcomed the change to straight plays, not only because of the lack of funding, but RAaW's Artistic Director Robbi Stevens was hungry to move in another direction.

Passionate about telling current stories and taking inspiration from the world around us, RAaW were quick to move from musicals to straight plays. Workshopping with actors and writers and working collaboratively with community members and charities, we are committed to developing topical, modern and thought provoking work.

Every story we write about, ranging from human trafficking to problems in the Middle East, to racial and homophobic discrimination, are based on real people in their specific communities. RAaW Theatre also takes pride in creating comedy with sketches ranging from the ridiculous and sublime to household humour.

None of RAaW's early work would have been possible without film and theatre maker Victoria Howell, who held the position of the resident writer for many years. She now runs an award winning independent film and media production company called Systir productions. Vicky and Robbi are currently in collaboration for future projects.

We are currently seeking bigger funding and partnerships to take our musicals and plays to a wider audience.
