Biscuits For Breakfast Porductions are an independent,
Irish theatre company, founded by graduates of DIT's
Conservatory of Music & Drama in 2004. The
company cut their teeth producing published works in
the early years of the International Dublin Gay
Theatre Festival before they began creating, writing
and producing original work from 2008, which saw
them take home many awards including:
Best new writing, Best actress and Best aspect of production.
The company's first original work "Somewhere Under The Rainbow - The Liza Minnelli Story", was originally staged as a 10 minute short play in 2011 before being developed into a full scale musical production, selling out the Olympia Theatre Dublin. A successful national tour of Ireland's arts centres shorlty followed and the show has gone on to receieve critical acclaim, nominations and awards internationally, during it's highly successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Brighton Fringe Festival, Greater Manchester Fringe and on the London Fringe Circuit in the UK.
