The Gardens by Broken Brooms Theatre Company
Humans have a tendency to forget about connection; we have become so self-absorbed with our own problems, our own lives; we fail to see each other, and ourselves, for what we really are.
We are creating this piece to reflect on ourselves as humans. Why we work a certain way, why we treat each other the way we do, what we can do to better ourselves as people, as a society, as individuals.
Come to me by Aquarium
Undine is the girl from the sea, Bertie is trying to figure who to be. The world becomes land and the world becomes sea. Both blurring the lines between reality and fantasy....
Are You Sure? by Threaded Theatre Productions

The piece explores the decisions that modern women in Ireland have to make, the resulting consequences, and the hope that is discovered through them.
