Black Crows

By Linda Brogan

CLEAN BREAK presents:

The pioneering Clean Break makes a welcome return to the Arcola with Black Crows, a powerful story of three women and their love for one man.

‘Brogan paints an evocative and unsentimental portrait of frustrated lives. She conjures powerful emotions.’ -Metro
