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.

Ongoing projects

  • Macbeth, performance in May 2018

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.
