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 eleven productions since being established in 2011 and have plenty more on the way. We have directors based in Cork, Waterford, Limerick 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

Following a sell out run in the 2018 Cork Midsummer Festival, Blackwater Babble by Ronan FitzGibbon is heading out on a national tour. Sounding the noble call in Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny and Dublin.

Were you ever at a singsong? Did it go late? Were the doors locked? Did you sing? Blackwater Babble is the story of a man who has spent years trying to work out what makes a good session. Every maudlin ballad that killed the night and every table-thumper that saved it!
This sell-out show invites its audience to head down the river with our scribbler and his younger self while they pick through the songs, fights, memories and obsessions that shaped his life. It is an exploration of regret and memory, masculinity and purpose, set against the changing face of the Irish pub.

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
