Back in 2005, David Harrower wrote a play called ‘Blackbird.’ It followed the story of two main characters, named Ray, a fifty five year old office worker, and Una, a twenty seven year old young woman. Una confronts Ray one day, at his place of work, and asks him to answer for the abuse she had suffered at his hands fifteen years ago. As the story unfolds, you get to see the mental anguish their relationship had on them for the rest of their lives. If you don’t want to miss out on this captivating show, then get your Blackbird tickets and enjoy the experience, live at the Belasco Theatre.
Human beings love stories. They love retelling them around the campfire, they love writing them down for their loved ones to read and they especially love watching them unfold right in front of their eyes, whether on television, film or the stage. The stage in particular has been used to portray stories through the use of actors, dialogues and music for centuries. Even to this day, despite the growth in technology and mass media, people flock to the theater to watch compelling stories brought to life.
A Shake of the Hand
One of the most compelling stories to come to the stage in recent years has been that of ‘Blackbird.’ A riveting tale that centers on the encounter between a young woman and a middle aged man, this story tackles the issue of abuse and its long term effects on a person’s mind and body. The play premiered over a decade ago, however the buzz around it still hasn’t died down, which is why it is being revived once again for Broadway. If you don’t want to miss out on this amazing show, then book your Blackbird tickets soon. Only then will you be able to enjoy the experience, live at the Belasco Theatre.
Blackbird was written by David Harrower, a Scottish playwright who wrote the play in 2005. Harrower had been associated with theater for just over ten years when he first thought of Blackbird. He had written several plays previously, and had also been involved in adapting books to the stage. However none of his previous efforts had garnered him much attention and it was not until after the release of Blackbird that he finally got the recognition he deserved.
A Sip of Tea
Blackbird follows the story of two main characters, a twenty seven year old young woman called Una, and a fifty five year old man named Ray. Ray is sitting in his office one day when Una shows up unannounced and demands to have a conversation with him. It is then revealed that both of them had been in a relationship several years ago. They had even run away together, only for Ray to suddenly ditch her in a hotel room and then subsequently get caught by the police for his various transgressions.
After getting out of jail, Ray manages to change his name, move to a different location and get a job, while Una is left to grow up frustrated and confused due to her memories. One day she happens to see a picture of him by chance and manages to track him down, searching for answers to the millions of questions running through her mind. Their eventual conversation reveals the tragic and unfortunate effects of their relationship, as well as the lasting effects it had on every aspect of their lives.
A Tip of the Hat
The play has been very influential over the years and even managed to win a few awards as well. In 2006 it won the Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland for the Best New Play, while the following year it also managed to win the Laurence Olivier Award for the Best New Play. It also went on to bag the first individual award for its writer, when it won the LA Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Writing in 2011.
The original play made its premier in 2005 at the Edinburgh International Festival and was directed by Peter Stein. It received amazing reviews and eventually moved on to the West End a year later. Since then it has been presented in several countries around the world, and is now finally making its way to Broadway. This newest version will feature some very big names, including acting veteran Jeff Daniels and talented up and comer Michelle Williams.
