The Crow's Tale' by String Theatre
Another chance to catch this wintery treat, and help pass those cold January lockdown afternoons!
The Crow’s Tale tells the story of a Crow with colourful rainbow feathers that flies to the sun to save the world from an endless winter. Inspired by a Lenni Lenape Native American legend, and based on the picture book (of the same name) by Naomi Howarth, Crow embarks on a journey that will transform his appearance forever. Kindness, generosity and courage shine through in this seasonal snowy tale, retold using string marionettes. With a soundtrack of achingly beautiful original music, and accompanied by Howarth’s original text, The Crow’s Tale is a piece of moving and heartwarming puppetry guaranteed to delight adults and children alike.
“It was hard to know whether to be amazed by the technical virtuosity of the two puppeteers, impressed by the beautifully crafted puppets, or wowed by the stunning stagecraft. In the end, I was simply swept away by an enchanting story, lovingly told..”
