In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother’s sudden death. Their father, a scruffy romantic, imagines a future of well meaning visitors and emptiness. In this moment of despair they are visited by Crow – antagonist, trickster, healer, babysitter. This sentimental bird is drawn to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him.

This new production, adapted from the award-winning novel by Max Porter, reunites director/adaptor Enda Walsh with actor Cillian Murphy, who gives a shattering performance as the bereaved widower. Grief Is The Thing With Feathers is a moving story of a widower and his young sons which becomes a profound meditation on love, loss and living.
