About this show

Heralded as both "a high-stakes thriller" and "spellbinding theater" by Variety magazine, Blackbird begins when Ray, a middle-aged office worker, receives a surprise visit from Una, a woman with whom he was involved 15 years earlier. As Una confronts him about the true nature of their past, what emerges is a complex portrait of a relationship that blurs the boundaries between lust, love, and something far more sinister. Hailed as a work that "has the potency of a 21st-century Oleanna" (Time Out London), Blackbird tackles its controversial topic with uncompromising honesty, surprising tenderness, and a riveting artistic tension that leaves audiences hanging on every word, every motion, and every ominous silence.
