‘…and all the sins of his father and his forefathers came out of his body, through the pores of his skin, in the form of crows.’

When a son returns home after being accused of a violent crime, a mother is forced to confront the ghosts of her past when the crows visit.

Inspired by true events in modern-day India, Anupama Chandrasekhar’s play When the Crows Visit explores the themes of Ibsen’s Ghosts and the cyclical nature of oppression.

This dark and thrilling play premiered at Kiln Theatre, London, in October 2019, directed by Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham.

‘Gruesomely powerful’

‘A startling, powerful play… a triumphant translation’
Evening Standard

‘A haunting beast of a play, one that persistently claws away at expectations and comforts until nothing remains but a raw, painful wound’
The Stage

‘Powerful, thought-provoking and suspenseful… wonderfully dramatic and potent’
