Crow by Handspring Puppet Company at Borough Hall
Handspring Puppet Company (makers of the War Horse puppets) presents Crow, based on a poem by Ted Hughes, with dramaturgy by Matthew Dunster, at Borough Hall at Greenwich Dance, in south London, from 18 June to 7 July 2012, as part of Greenwich+Docklands International Festival 2012.
