BrokenCrow Theatre Company finds a new nest in the South East.
Garter Lane Arts Centre is delighted to welcome BrokenCrow’s six Artistic Directors to the venue as they assume the role of Theatre Company In Residence for the coming creative year. This is a hugely exciting development for BrokenCrow who have just kicked off an exciting and ambitious programme of new work for 2023, debuting at The Everyman, Cork and Peacock Theatre, Dublin in February (Our Tethered Kin), and producing two new plays (The Settling and Found) at Cork Midsummer Festival and Clonmel Junction Festival later this year.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the company”, says founder member and Tramore resident, Ronan Fitzgibbon. “A number of us are local, or have made homes in Waterford and the South East over the years, so to be supported by Garter Lane for a period of creative development here really feels like a sort of homecoming. There’s such wealth of talent and theatre history here, we can’t wait to be part of its future.”
The company intends to focus on two new works in development during the residency – The Forest Dreams Us and As Was – alongside a series of Play Clinics for emerging writers.
BrokenCrow are: Deirdre Dwyer, Ronan FitzGibbon, George Hanover, Gavin McEntee, Rosie O’Regan and Aideen Wylde.
