When the Crows Visit
When a son returns home after being accused of a violent crime, a mother is forced to confront the ghosts of her past when the crows visit.
Inspired by true events in modern-day India, Anupama Chandrasekhar's play When the Crows Visit explores the themes of Ibsen's Ghosts and the cyclical nature of oppression.
This dark and thrilling play premiered at Kiln Theatre, London, in October 2019, directed by Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham.
