A Middle Child production

The Canary & The Crow

Written by Daniel Ward

Music by Prez 96 and James Frewer

Grime and hip hop inspired 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 a struggle between a new environment that doesn’t accept you and an old one that has no opportunity.

Featuring original music by Prez 96 and James Frewer, The Canary and the Crow is the latest show at Hull Truck Theatre from the company behind the “electric” (★★★★ The Stage) and “truly immersive” (★★★★★ A Younger Theatre) Us Against Whatever.
