Grief Is The Thing With Feathers
By Max Porter
Adapted and directed by Enda Walsh
Once upon a time there was a crow who wanted nothing more than to care for a pair of motherless children…
In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother’s sudden death. Their father, a scruffy romantic, imagines a future of well meaning visitors and emptiness. In this moment of despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, healer, babysitter. This sentimental bird is drawn to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him.
A new production based on the award-winning novel by Max Porter. Directed by Enda Walsh and starring Cillian Murphy, Grief Is The Thing With Feathers is a moving story of a widower and his young sons which becomes a profound meditation on love, loss and living.
