Isegran, Fredrikstad

The Crow is the last part of a trilogy inspired by the medieval balladKråkevis (The Crow Song); where a man who goes to the forest to chop wood, picks up a fight against a huge crow. The company’s previous productions have shown how The Man lost both his son and his family to this merciless creature of nature. In this perfomance he prepares the final battle against his worst enemy, the Crow, and its accomplices.

However, we recommend dressing well and according to the weather (wool, waterproof and windproof clothing)!
