An acrobatic trio take on a troublesome crow which has nestled in the chimney of a derelict house in Barkingside this weekend.

Residents can find out how they fare in their bid to gain possession the building in a performance of The Crow House, commissioned by Vision Redbridge, in Ken Aston Square in High Road on Saturday, May 19.

The performance is inspired by silent films and uses a combination of circus acrobatics, puppetry, musical saw and harp playing as well as audience participation.

The audience is in for a choreographed frenzy of silks trapeze, hat juggling and slap stick as, one-by-one, three very different characters arrive to try and seize control of the house.

Through their cunning plans to each take over a room in the house, they begin to accept each other.

But they still have one problem remaining - the furious bird in the chimney.

The show is free to attend takes place at 12pm and 2.30pm.
