Join the Pidd Davey family in this urban parable that brings traditional storytelling to the stage.

The Crow Family is a completely new and original musical theatre show, featuring music from Australian rock legend, Peter Farnan (Boom Crash Opera).
Nobody saw this happen so it may or may not be true.
A woman lives in the middle of a city, next to a tree that smells of lemons. In this tree lives a family of crows, but their home is threatened by developers looking to build inner city apartments where factories and shops used to be. One day, the child of the crows falls from the nest. As night falls, the neighbourhood cats move in for the kill. The woman intervenes and her encounter with the crows and their child transforms her life and ultimately transforms her. Told by real life family, Maude Davey, David Pidd and their children, Alice (17) and Leo (10), The Crow Family is a gentle, intimate, and beautiful music performance event about remarkable creatures and what makes us human.
Genre: Theatre, families with kids 11+
