This is drama at its best, acted beautifully. The author takes a taboo subject which would put you in a framework of "right and wrong" and then unfolds the plot so that you are forced to put those polarities aside and look at the nuances in the human condition. Too bad it's already left town.
Quotes & Highlights
“…theater at its most elemental: one man, one woman, one set and a head-to-head confrontation, about events long past, that occurs in real time.” —The New York Times
“An extraordinary, no-holds-barred drama that both chills and thrills.” —London Telegraph
by David Harrower
directed by David Muse
starring Lisa Joyce and Jerry Whiddon
From the first line to the final blackout, Harrower never gives the audience a moment to breathe in the tautly written drama. The play begins when Una shows up unannounced at Ray’s office. They have not seen each other in 15 years – not since their scandalous relationship came to a crashing halt with astonishing repercussions. Over the course of 90 minutes the audience discovers the startling secrets behind their relationship and the consequences of it from which Ray and Una cannot escape. Blackbird provokes existing assumptions and dares the audience to rethink the meaning of love stories.
