Crooked House Theatre Company

Crooked House Theatre Company was formed in 1993 and is based in Newbridge. We organise theatre activities for teenagers and young people. Our main project is called Kildare Youth Theatre. Participation in all our projects is free.

We use theatre to help young people find their way in the world, to explore their own identity and their values, and to develop key social skills that enhance resilience. 

While good theatre-making with young people can contribute to personal and social growth in these areas, we also believe in the power of the art-form itself to nurture creative and expressive young artists. Our projects are workshops, productions of contemporary and classical plays, performances of new plays devised by the members, and trips and exchanges to other European youth theatres.
