Extremism by Anders Lustgarten
Why is it wrong to want to feel safe?

A play about fear, friendship and the creeping polarisation of our society. Join us in the classroom and pull up a seat.

The Crow’s Tale
The Crow’s Tale tells the story of a crow with colourful rainbow feathers that in the middle of a snowy winter travels to the sun to ask for warmth, as all the animals are cold and hungry. 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.
The Crow’s Tale is based on a picture book (of the same name) by Naomi Howarth, inspired by a Lenni Lenape Native American Indian legend.
