Theatre and Arts Organisation
Crooked House, established in 1993, is a theatre and arts organisation working with artists, actors, and non-actors in a range of settings to develop new performance material.
They work mainly with young and emerging performers, and support a vibrant youth organization and have a well developed outreach and educational programme.
The work of Crooked House is often in collaboration with international partners, for example, with the Royal National Theatre London – as part of their Connections youth theatre programme, or as co-creators of projects such as with Osmosis (Greece), the National Theatre of Scotland, Teatro della Limonaia (Italy), Le Grand Bleu (France) and Rogaland Teater (Norway).
