Broke Her, the debut production of northern productions company Steel Harbour Productions, a thriller set in the home of a promising young couple Joshua and Isobelle, during a calm summer day Isobelle returns home from work and the life she knew becomes threatened by the grips of the charming and despicable dewolfe, a mysterious figure who holds no compassion and will take the pretty life this couple has lead and turn it into a hellscape. Broke Her is filled with mystery and intrigue, and will make audiences question right and wrong, justice and inequality.

Sensational, cliff-hanger writing full of well constructed suspense keeping you on the edge of your seat. Terrifically acted and directed. Highly recommended if you want a well developed drama/mystery in between the Fringe's musicals. High marks all around.

Broke Her is a tense thriller, that is filled with intriguing dialogue as Dewolf holds Isobel captive in her own home, revealing everything he knows about her and her husband’s life. With a thrilling twist ending, Broke Her takes the audience from intrigue to shock as DeWolf’s intentions are revealed. Fantastic acting throughout, would defo recommend for fringe 2022!

Broke Her is an excellent new piece of writing with suspenceful and mysterious moments throughout. The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat - a brilliant production, well done all cast & creatives! A must see at the Fringe this year.

Broke Her is a tense, cat and mind games, production. The audience watch as the protagonist Dewolf sinisterly plays with the mind of his hostage, as he knows everything about her. What the audience do not expect is a big twist… you’ll have to watch to find that out ;).

Brilliantly acted and great writing. Excited to see what Steel Harbour do next.
