…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 explores the themes of Ibsen’s Ghosts and the cyclical nature of oppression. Ayesha Dharker stars as Hema alongside Ian Charleson Award winner Bally Gill as Akshay. They’re joined in the cast by Mariam Haque (as Uma/Kavita), Asif Khan (Gopi/Inspector), Aryana Ramkhalawon (Ragini), Paul G Raymond (David) and Soni Razdan (Jaya).
When the Crows Visit is directed by Kiln artistic director Indhu Rubasingham, designed by Richard Kent, with lighting by Oliver Fenwick, music and sound by Ben & Max Ringham and casting by Briony Barnett.
