Fifteen years ago, Una and Ray embarked on a relationship that changed their lives. Now Una has tracked down Ray in the debris-littered lunchroom of the factory where he’s a middling executive.

Is she seeking vengeance? Or something altogether more complex? The mutual recollection of their time together culminates in an explosive conclusion.

BLACKBIRD was the most talked about, critically acclaimed production of the 2005 Edinburgh Festival before transferring to the West End in 2006.

"With consummate skill and brooding ambiguity, Harrower suggests that there may be a strange affinity, tantamount to love, between people of different generations and that adult guilt and childhood innocence should never be automatically assumed" The Guardian

"This is a seriously thought-provoking piece" The Independent on Sunday

"A riveting study in sexual obsession that leaves one both shaken and stirred" The Guardian
