Description

The award-winning Middle Child present The Canary and the Crow – brand new gig theatre about the journey of a working-class black kid who is accepted to a prestigious grammar school. This lyrical, semi-autobiographical piece from writer and performer Daniel Ward uses grime, hip hop and theatre to tell the story of the struggle between a new environment that doesn't accept you and an old one that has no opportunity. 'A superb piece of gig theatre' (Lyn Gardner on Middle Child’s sell-out hit, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything).
