Who we are
Established in 1993, Crooked House is a theatre and arts organisation based in Newbridge, County Kildare, working with artists, actors, and non-actors in a range of settings to develop new performance material.
We work mainly with young and emerging performers, supporting a vibrant youth organization and a well developed outreach and educational programme.
We collaborate with a network of European theatres and youth-theatres, mostly though the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, making projects, performances and exchanges across the continent.
With Kildare Youth Theatre:
- Macbeth, performance in May 2018
- Act Of Oblivion a devised piece in 2018
- Want by Barney Norris for NT Connections 2018
With Crooked House volunteers and members:
- Short introductory play for the Léargas Forum 2017 in November
- Drama workshops for youth
Crooked House is supported by Kildare County Council.
We have also received project support arising from successful applications for funding to Erasmus+, The Arts Council, Kildare and Wicklow ETB, and the HSE.
Kildare Youth Theatre is a long-standing, affiliated member of Youth Theatre Ireland.
