After 15 years of silence, Una, a young woman in her twenties, pays Ray a visit at his workplace, a photo of him in a trade magazine having put her on his track. The last time she saw him, she was twelve, he was forty, and they had a « relationship ». They haven’t set eyes on each other since.

Through gripping dialogue, each in turn reveals how their lives have been turned upside down, subjected to the judgment of others.
Allusions, hesitations, uncovered lies; until the final twist, the play keeps you guessing.

Blackbird is taut, twisty and provocative. There’s value in works that make your mind fly to uncomfortable places and send out cries you can’t unhear.

(New York Daily News)


Harrowing – and absolutely brilliant.
(New York Times)

Profoundly unsettling drama.

This is an extraordinary, no-holds-barred drama that both chills and thrills. It tackles the provocative theme of pedophilia, but refuses to draw glib, reassuring or predictable conclusions.
(The Daily Telegraph)



Blackbird was commissioned by the Edinburgh International Festival and was first presented in the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh, on 15 August 2005. The production transferred to the Albery Theatre, London, from 7 February 2006, where it was produced by Michael Edwards and Carole Winter for MJE productions.
