General Info

In the mythologies of many tribal cultures, crows, like ravens, are Tricksters. These are gods or spirits or sprites who effect change through mischief and subversion. They break rules. They defy order. They turn things upside down, but always with positive results. In many cultures it is the Trickster figure that brings fire or light to mankind. The energy of the artist is Trickster energy. And, given the Trickster's gender ambiguity, it is the energy of the queer artist in particular. So, as we embarked on creating a queer theatre here in Baltimore, we took the name of Crow. But, there is more: an "iron crow" refers to a crow bar, a tool for prying open locked doors or blocked passageways. And so our name, like the work we hope to do, is multilayered. Iron Crow Theatre is full of fun and pranks and tricks but with a strong and undeniable purpose at its core: to pry open hearts and minds.

A quick blurb from The Homo Poe Show- "The next night there five more short plays were on deck at Plays and Players for The Homo Poe Show, the first of the festival’s One Night Stands, performed by seven versatile actors that make up The Iron Crow Theatre troupe from Baltimore. Poe has history in both Philly and Baltimore. The plays touched on macabre themes Poe queerer than queer- dark psychological themes from the psychosexual dances of choreographer Tony Byrd’s ‘Do You Mark Me Well’ to evermore unresolved relationships in ‘Super-hot Raven‘. The highlight was the full ensemble piece ’ Grieving and Sequins’ by written and directed by ICT’s artistic director Steven J. Satta. The story of a recently widowed gay man who can’t move on and is disappearing himself in his grief. Nick Horan gives a full throttle performance as the man who wrestles those Poe-etic ghosts to escape his apartment and when he does it’s in legendary club diva style." -Lewis J Whittington, Philadelphia Reviewer
