Event Details

The award-winning Middle Child present brand new gig theatre about a working class black kid who’s accepted to a prestigious grammar school.

This lyrical, semi-autobiographical piece from writer and performer Daniel Ward uses grime, hip hop and theatre to tell the 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 Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
