embracing the chaos...

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, Spraoi, Rough Magic, the Everyman, Garter Lane, A Little Room TDC and Fringe Lab for their continued support.

Blackwater Babble

@ the Cork Midsummer Festival

What makes a good singsong? What makes a great one? This is a story of forty Summers spent trying to answer that question. Forty Summers of rowing down the Blackwater river stopping in every pub along the way. Every noble call. Every session. Every maudlin ballad that killed a night and every table-thumping favourite that saved one!

Enter Juliet

It’s a matter of life or death. Enter Juliet is a darkly comic tale of the abandoned mad. It is a riveting story of the starving and trapped, of power struggles, lunacy and the stories we tell ourselves to get through the day. Trapped and long since forgotten, our... read more
