Hatch is very excited to be working with Mark O’Rowe, one of Ireland’s leading playwrights, on his major reworking of his outstanding play Crestfall. Director Annabelle Comyn is delighted to be work-shopping this new version with Mark at The National Theatre Studio in London. We have a wonderful cast that includes Ruth Bradley, Justine Mitchell and Jess Murphy.

Crestfall tells the deeply moving story of three women who live in an unremitting savage landscape. Little grows there; the carcases of dead animal bodies are strewn around this wasteland. Love has been hijacked and is used as a tool of self-determination, manipulation, and abuse. Yet Olive, Alison and Tilly are on their own individual journeys of understanding; how love lies at the heart of their survival.

We hope to have further news on our plans for Crestfall in the coming year.
