Performed by the Pidd-Davey Family
Nobody saw this happen so it may or may not be true.
A woman lives in the middle of a city, next to a tree that smells of lemons. In this tree lives a family of crows, but their home is threatened by developers looking to build inner city apartments where factories and shops used to be.
Told by real life family, Maude Davey, David Pidd and their children, Alice (17) and Leo (10) in the tradition of travelling show biz troupes of old, The Crow Family shares this urban parable alongside songs, confessions, tales of famous and infamous families, The Crow Family is an insight into the delicate and difficult business of being a family.
Featuring songs by Australian rock legend, Peter Farnan (Boom Crash Opera), The Crow Family is a gentle, intimate, and beautiful music performance event about remarkable creatures and what makes us human.

Comedy legend Michael Veitch with Simon Oats revive the golden era of 1940’s radio drama – 50 voices + 100 sound effects = 2 very busy actors!
Take a couple of hilariously antiquated radio plays, add two somewhat over-stressed actors and you're ON THE AIR with 'Mystery in the Air!' This is the show that transports audiences back to the style, the fashion and - let's face it - the sheer political incorrectness of the 1940s. Time are tough and It's all down to just our boys - costumes, sound effects, scene changes, music, voices - they'll do the lot. It's a big ask, and occasionally they might even succeed. The results are hilarious!
