★★★★★ 'Contemporary and thrilling to watch.' A Younger Theatre
★★★★ 'An absolute banger of a Fringe piece with some solid laughs provided throughout.' WhatsOnStage

Award-winning theatre company 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 and was nominated for a Total Theatre Award at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Middle Child are a Hull-based company creating gig theatre that brings people together for a good night out with big ideas. They tell untold stories which capture the electrifying moment when the beat drops, mixing original live music with bold new writing.
