Coronavirus: a message to our audiences and community

Hull Truck Theatre Future Fund

Writer Daniel Ward recently accepted the Writers’ Guild Award for Best Play for Young Audiences for The Canary and the Crow.

The award-winning Middle Child present award-winning gig theatre about a working class black kid who’s 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.

Featuring original live music by Prez 96 and James Frewer, The Canary and the Crow won the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Middle Child are a Hull-based company creating gig theatre that brings people together for a good night out with big ideas. They tell untold stories which capture the electrifying moment when the beat drops, mixing original live music with bold new writing.
