Broken Glass are a young London-based theatre company producing original work and exploring
Founded in 2007, we are dedicated to integrating music and physical theatre with narrative and dialogue-driven work.
'The antidote to its superficially flashy West End neighbours, Broken Glass are producing fringe theatre that’s bold and ambitious, and are well worth keeping an eye out for.'
The London Word
'Both on and behind the stage Broken Glass Theatre Company exude exactly the kind of excitement about what they’re doing and the art of theatre that makes the theatre so, well, exciting.'
A Younger Theatre
"We made a division between them and us - pretended they were nothing more than stories to keep us warm through the long
winter months. But sometimes, during the dark nights before the spring, they seem to be stronger than fiction."
The first act of Broken Glass's new production "Glass Mountain" will be previewing at the Rag Factory, off Brick Lane, on 28th August (bank holiday Sunday) at 12noon.
A new play following the fortunes of Little Hans, a fairytale hero who sets out to learn what fear is, as he and his cousin Lukoje, a village storyteller, search for Hans's missing bride. The cousins travel through a strange fairytale world peopled by witches and wolves, and discover that that the rules of the fairytale are not as simple as they'd once thought.
An original production based on the tales of the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and some of our own.
We are keen to hear audience feedback on this new project, planned as a major production for 2012, and hope to see to see lots of you at the Rag Factory later this month.
