Rivendell Theatre Ensemble is a professional theatre company committed to cultivating the talents of women theatre artists and to seek out innovative plays.

About Rivendell Theater

Founded in 1994, Rivendell Theatre Ensemble is an award winning, critically acclaimed professional theatre company committed to recognizing and cultivating the talents of women in theatre—from playwrights and actors to designers and managers. Rivendell’s productions explore the unique female perspectives of everyday stories in an intimate, salon environment. Over the past twenty years, Rivendell has grown to fill an important role in the Chicago theatre community as the only Equity theatre in Chicago committed to advancing the lives of women through theatre. Rivendell has become a leader in new play development, and offers an artistic home for women theater artists to develop their work. After years of being an itinerant company, Rivendell settled in their our own theater space in 2010 in Edgewater, and is now focused on becoming an integral community partner and serving as a catalyst to engage audiences in a discussion of social issues.
