…and all the sins of his father and his forefathers came out of his body, through the pores of his skin, in the form of crows.
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 explores the themes of Ibsen’s Ghosts and the cyclical nature of oppression in a dark and thrilling world première.
Indhu Rubasingham said today, “I am thrilled to be working with such a talented cast on Anu’s new play. I first worked with Anu 12 years ago at the Royal Court. She had come through their brilliant international programme. In my opinion, she is the most important voice coming out of India and it is a real privilege to be directing and producing her new play here at Kiln Theatre.”
When the Crows Visit is at The Kiln Theatre 23rd October to 30th November.
