.. a powerful play that grabs you by the throat and the heart from the first moments and doesn't let go until the curtain comes down... it's meaty, provocative theater that will remind you how thrilling, and how disturbing, going to see a good play can be.

Discussion to follow each performance.


David Harrower's electrifying and explosive play, Blackbird, has Ray confronting his past when Una arrives unannounced at his office. Guilt and raw emotions run high as they recollect the passionate love affair they had fifteen years earlier. As tensions rise, we are left to question: When is love abuse? And can we ever break free from the shackles of the past? A hit of the Edinburgh Festival, and a critically acclaimed hit in New York and London, Blackbird is a provocative, no-holds-barred drama that both chills and thrills.

A fascinating and unnerving ... cat-and-mouse tale of revenge and sexual intrigue, with genuine theatricality and undeniable shock value. -Associated Press
