embracing the chaos...

Six directors. Three counties. One company.

BrokenCrow is a place where six artistic directors come to play, learn and collaborate. We are writers, designers, performers and stage directors. BrokenCrow is a place for us to support and challenge each other. It is a place for new ideas to be nurtured, developed. It is an ambitious production company fueled by the joy and possibilities of collaboration.

We aim to create work that is not only as diverse as our members but professional, audience focused and creatively ambitious.

BrokenCrow Theatre Company is Deirdre Dwyer, Ronan FitzGibbon, George Hanover, Gavin McEntee, Rosie O’Regan and Aideen Wylde. We have staged thirteen productions since being established in 2011 and have plenty more on the way. We have directors based in Cork, Waterford and Kerry.

BrokenCrow are the current Artists-in-Residence at the Everyman Theatre. We are very grateful to Cork Arts Office, TDC Corcadorca, the Arts Council, Graffiti, Spraoi, Rough Magic, the Everyman, Waterford Arts Office, Garter Lane, Project Arts Centre, A Little Room TDC and Fringe Lab for their continued support.

Two children are found at the edge of the darkest wood. A wood populated by The Shadows that guide the actions of man. As they grow, the cruelties of their world send them down different paths. This is a story of two paths through those woods. One in the light. One through the dark. Which one would you choose?

In our modern world of hyper morality and virtual judgement, how do we deal with the darkest corners of our minds? These are the questions at the heart of Our Tethered Kin, an epic new dark fairytale told through movement, music, puppetry and song.

Our Tethered Kin was developed and produced with support from The Arts Council, the Abbey Theatre, The Everyman and the National Opera House.
