The Crow's Tale

Presented by: String Theatre

Price: £9.00 - £32.00

Running time: 45 minutes

Ages: 3+

Inspired by a Lenni Lenape Indian legend, The Crow’s Tale tells the story of a crow with colourful rainbow feathers. In the middle of a snowy winter, when all the animals are cold and hungry, Crow selflessly travels to the sun to ask for warmth.


Crow embarks on a journey that will transform his appearance forever, while kindness, generosity and courage will shine through. The story is highly visual, retold using string marionettes and sophisticated lighting.


The soundtrack is specially composed using music to recreate the animals’ sounds, and accompanied by the original writing, delivered as a voiceover narration.


A rare opportunity to see long-string marionettes.
