A young black boy dances the shuffle better than anyone but that isn't going to fill his belly. Teenager Hazel gives him what he wants. Older woman Leonora gives him what he needs. His mum Queenie is saving up to go to Jamaica and won't give him anything more than a catering tin of beans. The fight is on... Black Crows is a powerful story of three women and their love for one man. Linda Brogan's new play creates a dark and vivid world of love, jealousy and hunger in 1970s Manchester.
