Cillian Murphy stars in Enda Walsh’s adaptation of Max Porter’s award-winning novel, a moving story of a widower and his young sons which becomes a profound meditation on love, loss and living.

Dates and Times: Mon 25 Mar - Sat 13 Apr 2019, 19:45.

In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother’s sudden death. Their father (Peaky Blinnders - Cillian Murphy), a scruffy romantic, imagines a future of well-meaning visitors and emptiness. In this moment of despair, they are visited by Crow – antagonist, babysitter, trickster and healer. The sentimental bird is drawn to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him.

This is ‘a production that will remain with you long after the curtain call’ and Murphy, in the central role, ‘leaves nothing at the stage door’ ***** (The Times).
