A smash hit! The most stimulating, provocative and gripping night in town… It's not to be missed
Ray, 56, is confronted with his past when Una, 27, arrives unannounced at his office. Guilt, anger and raw emotions are running high as they recollect the passionate love affair they had 15 years earlier.
Dynamic, potent, bracingly audacious. Blackbird has the potency of a twenty-first century Oleanna.
Blackbird opened at the Albery Theatre, London (since renamed the Noel Coward Theatre) on 7 February 2006 for a limited season until 13 May 2006.
Presented by Michael Edwards and Carole Winter for MJE Productions present the Edinburgh International Festival production
