embracing the chaos...

Seven 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.

Written and Directed by Deirdre Dwyer

BrokenCrow in association with Garter Lane Arts Centre and The Everyman present The Little Robber Girl, a limited audio drama series for children with an accompanying posted pack, written and directed by Deirdre Dwyer.

Following the sell-out success of last year’s adaptation of The Snow Queen, BrokenCrow returns with an original spin-off audio series for children, with a set of illustrated note cards, featuring extra exclusive content, to accompany the series arriving in the post. The creative team from last year’s runaway success series returns to bring another unique children’s audio series to you in the comfort of your home.

Being bad is always good when it comes to Mattie – a thief and a trickster from a notorious family of sea-faring bandits! Never one to do what she is told, right and wrong are not straightforward for a girl like her. But, Mattie is also brave and a loyal daughter and this time it’s up to Mattie to come to her family’s rescue. Join Mattie, her little dog Arthur and her new friend Finn as they go in search of Mattie’s missing Mammy…and return with much more than buried treasure. Let the listening adventure begin!

The Little Robber Girl is created for children 7 years+. The Little Robber Girl’s five episodes will be released every morning from Monday 18 to Friday 22 October, just in time for the mid-term break! Ticket holders will receive a link to the audio series and a posted pack containing five sealed envelopes of beautifully illustrated, specially commissioned cards and story extras inside.


Includes a link to the YouTube channel where each new episode will appear and a package of beautifully illustrated cards, posted to your home. The opening of the sealed cards and reading the message will add another unique dimension to the listening adventure.

 ★★★★ “Deirdre Dwyer’s sensitive script … Dwyer’s production adopts the brisk pace of an adventure story… a dynamic cast voice bright-coloured characters met along the way … Released as an eight-part series, the play ingeniously keeps its audience on Gráinne’s trail by posting out sealed messages, one to be opened for each episode. Whether a report about a missing boat or a payoff for a stolen carriage, the dispatches – embellished by a team of excellent illustrators – extend the rich world of Dwyer’s play.” Musings In Intermissions (Review of The Snow Queen)
