BLACKBIRD

by David Harrower

directed by Tony Estrella

Scottish playwright David Harrower’s most acclaimed and most controversial play, Blackbird "is theater at its most elemental," says The New York Times. In a littered factory break room, 55-year-old Ray and 27-year-old Una engage in a confrontation so real and raw that you feel you should look away. But how can you? Fifteen years earlier, the two had a sexual affair...when she was 12. Ray has assumed a new identity and a new life following his imprisonment, while Una has not stopped searching for answers to her conflicting emotions. What emerges from the recriminations and explanations is a complex relationship that blurs the boundaries between love and lust, obsession and abuse. Uncompromising, shocking and surprisingly tender, Blackbird will leave you hanging on every word and every uncomfortable silence. For mature audiences only.


 Winner of the 2007 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play

 

“Masterly, mesmerizing...extraordinary...a miracle.”
(New York Times)

 

"Four Stars! David Harrower's Blackbird comes as a revelation. [It] is the sort of daring theater far too absent from our stages these days."

(New York Post)
