Rachel Barnes in “The Canary and the Crow”

Rachel Barnes is appearing in “The Canary and the Crow” at the Arcola Theatre from January 16th to February 8th.

This semi-autobiographical piece from writer and performer Daniel Ward blends grime, hip-hop and classical music to tell the story of a young person’s search for belonging in a divided society.

Featuring original live music by Prez 96 and James Frewer.


“This composition … relies on the talent of the various performers, able to express in physicality as well as in music the severity or silliness of a scene, with particular praise going to Rachel Barnes as a slew of various characters.” – BROADWAYBABY.COM, Miles Hurley
