“A delight” - British Theatre Guide



Don't miss this heart-warming true story of an unlikely friendship between a woman and a wounded crow - featuring live music, original songs, great drama – and a crow called Alfie.

Alfie keeps hiding Beth’s gardening gloves. She’s got lots to do and it’s just not funny anymore. Why won’t he realise that gardening is helping her forget everything? Why can’t he see she’s still not over her divorce? Why can’t he just be nice?

A heart-warming story of friendship, healing and kindness from award-winning playwright Hattie Naylor, whose credits include The Diary of Samuel Pepys for BBC Radio 4 and Clause 39, performed at Salisbury Cathedral in 2015.

Audience feedback via Twitter:

"A beautiful story"   "Made us cry at the end as it was so happy"   "An incredible show"   "Beautiful, funny and touching"
