A Middle Child production - The Canary and the Crow, written by Daniel Ward
Music by Prez 96 and James Frewer
Monday 11 May 2020

Middle Child present award-winning, grime-inspired theatre about a working class black kid who’s accepted to a prestigious grammar school.

This lyrical, semi-autobiographical show from writer and performer Daniel Ward uses grime, hip hop and theatre to tell a story of the struggle between a new environment that doesn't accept you and an old one that has no opportunity. 

Featuring original live music by Prez 96 and James Frewer, The Canary and the Crow won the Writers’ Guild Award for Best Play for Young Audiences in 2020 and the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Middle Child is a Hull-based company creating gig theatre that brings people together for a good night out with big ideas.

"The audience was on their feet before the show was even finished.” - The List
