Anupama Chandrasekhar's bone-chilling and provocative new play When The Crows Visit makes its world premiere at London's Kiln Theatre, where it will play for a strictly limited season. Featuring heavy themes of domestic violence and both physical and mental abuse, the Off-West End theatre play serves as Chandrasekhar's captivating exploration into the cycles of oppressive relationships, adopting various subject matter from Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts. You'll be so invested in the show's plot, you won't be able to look away!

What is When The Crows Visit about?

...and all the immoral acts and wrongdoings of his father erupted from his body, seeping out the pores of his skin as pitch-black crows, harbingers of what's in store.

When a son comes home after being blamed for a bloody crime, his mother has no choice but to face the ghosts of her dark past. 

Riveting new play When The Crows Visit is inspired by real events that occurred in modern-day India.

Morium7th December

Amazing production and was just left with so many thoughts about the subject matter. Well done to all the cast!

Britta Stephan2nd December

Funny, harrowing and anything in between. Highly recommended.

Kia Brame2nd December

It was a great show with an excellent plot twist. But in areas it was lacking pace, and there was too much shouting in certain parts, especially between the two mother's. The scene would've been more effective if there was less loud shouting.

Keya Desai1st December

Brilliant script, performed well supported by effective set design. Soni Razdan's performance was on point.

kavita bhardwaj28th November

Certain actors dialogues were not very clear Missed what they said quite a bit. Not sure it was due to sound issues but it certainly needs looking into.

Raksha Sumaria28th November

It was a very powerful play. Good acting, this play is not for the faint hearted. It left me disturbed.

Vasika Madhaparia28th November

Really nice venue

Mrs B Yogasakaran26th November

Excellent play depicting life in India generations gone. Highlighting current issues of rape and murder repeating itself.And how rich and influential families get away from murder charges. All the actors did their part well. Particularly the newcomer Paul.
