Raven Crow


Between The Roots And Wings
By Nicole Acquah

Drawing on both Greek and Renaissance myth, this unsettling new play by Nicole Acquah explores truth and fantasy, as well as how easily our understanding of stability flutters away.


Dante, a novelist known for his successful but formulaic romantic novels, craves to dive deeper.

Against the will of both wife and agent, he embarks on a journey to discover the truth about the disappearance of the notorious Icarus from a renowned women’s penitentiary.

Rumours fly about state corruption, possible murder and potential cover-ups.

Amidst the constant turmoil of the prison, The Raven is circling.
