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 works.

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

BLACKBIRD is an electrifying psychological thriller that was the hit of the Edinburgh Festival before taking the West End and Broadway by storm.

"An extraordinary, no-holds-barred drama"
Daily Telegraph

"Gripping...thrilling...a sensation"
Sunday Herald

"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
