Following the death of his wife, a young father’s hold on reality crumbles and a strange presence begins to stalk him from the shadowy recesses of the apartment he shares with his two young sons. A man-like crow, seemingly brought to life from the father’s work as an illustrator, is about to become a very real part of all of their lives, ultimately guiding them towards the new shape their family must take.
Starring Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch, Dylan Southern’s adaptation of Max Porter’s acclaimed novel Grief is the Thing with Feathers (named a Sunday Times ‘Top 100 Novel of the Twenty-first century’), THE THING WITH FEATHERS is the deeply moving yet wickedly funny story of Dad, his two Boys, and the dark and mischievous shape-shifting Crow.
