Something to crow about at SLT

 A Murder Of Crows is descending upon Surrey Little this spring

Directed by Lynne Karey-McKenna, A Murder of Crows runs until May 7 at Surrey Little Theatre, just across the Langley-Surrey boundary. 

This is Surrey Little Theatre’s Fraser Valley Zone entry into the Theatre BC festival.

Ed Graczyk’s story takes place in small town Wallace, Ohio, once a thriving farming community, now a chemically polluted soon-to-be ghost town. The play’s central characters, Harley and Jenny Woodson, are being relocated to a trailer home in the city by their long estranged son and daughter-in-law. 

This whimsical tale of an environmental nightmare intertwines touching emotional drama with a generous dose of comedy. 

A compassionate old fashioned play about life and death in middle America touching on themes of aging, love, loyalty and displacement, A Murder of Crows softens the hard facts of life and death with infectious warmth and a great sense of humour.

Showtimes are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. with additional Sunday matinees on April 17 and May 1 at 2 p.m.  

Tickets can be reserved at (604) 576-8451 or  reservations@surreylittletheatre.com.

All tickets are $15. Surrey Little Theatre is located at 7027 184 St.
