Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company presents the Houston Premiere of Mac Wellman’s, A Murder of Crows. In a world where the air's "mustardy", and the ocean is so polluted it looks like a bowl of custard, young Susannah reels from the death of her father, killed under a pile of radioactive chicken droppings. With her brother slowly turning into a statue in the garden and fed up with the rest of her greedy, vulgar family, Susannah finally follows her dead father's advice and leaves to live with the crows.
