Very provocative to the extent that I was uncomfortable. Certainly not boring and very well acted.

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.
