Written by Daniel Ward, the semi-autobiographical play about a working class Black kid accepted into a grammar school earned Daniel the George Devine Award, for most promising playwright, and a Writers’ Guild Award, for best play for young audiences.
The Canary and the Crow features a hip hop, grime and classical soundtrack by Prez 96 and James Frewer and also earned two Off West End awards for its run at London’s Arcola Theatre in 2020.
The show premiered at Hull Truck Theatre in 2019 and went on to wow the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, before touring with the Paines Plough Roundabout that autumn, where this 360° video recording was captured.
The video, shot by LIVR in the Roundabout at Theatre Royal Stratford East in 2019, will be available on our website, from 25-31 October.
You can decide whether to pay £5, £10 and £15, depending on how many people watch with you. Or how generous you feel!
No pre-booking is necessary – simply return to the listing on our website when the stream is available to access the video.
- Catch the cast of The Canary and the Crow reunite to play songs and scenes from the show in our 10th Birthday Party, at Social on Humber Street in Hull, on Thursday 4 November.
