PlayKit | A Murder of Crows
by Mike Kenny
Inspired by the story of Hansel and Gretel, A Murder of Crows explores the themes of famine, family loyalties, and survival. An ensemble of actors weave a gothic story of the journey of two children navigating fear and abandonment, from the squawking perspective of a group of boisterous crows.
