Seven directors. Three counties. One company.
BrokenCrow is a place where seven 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, Eadaoin O’Donoghue, Rosie O’Regan and Aideen Wylde. We have staged nine productions since being established in 2011 and have plenty more on the way. We have directors based in Cork, Waterford and Dublin. We are very grateful to TDC Corcadorca, Graffiti, the Everyman, Garter Lane, A Little Room TDC and Fringe Lab for their continued support.
Coming soon to the Dublin Fringe Festival…
Levin & Levin by Aideen Wylde
The story of Ida and Bubbie, escapees from the Russian pogroms of the early 1900s. Dressed as boys to save their lives, the girls eventually become Europe’s most famous male impersonators. But on the night of their Broadway debut, disaster strikes and the Levins are forced to question everything they ever thought about everything they ever knew. With appearances from the likes of Rasputin, Freud and Hitler, Levin & Levin is a story so incredible it might just be true. Theirs is an ode to the unsung female heroes of small-time showbiz and the displaced children of the world.
Contains use of strobe lighting and smoke machines.
