Synopsis

This play written David Harrower the Scottish playwright, was commissioned by the Edinburgh International Festival and premiered at the 2005 Festival.

Blackbird has been acclaimed as a controversial but remarkable and riveting piece which raises serious questions about our society and morality.

In February 2006, it opened at the West End’s Albery Theatre. Since then it has been performed in various countries including, Sweden, the USA, Tokyo, South Africa, Singapore, Spain and Mexico.

Our Director, Chris Weber-Brown who saw the Cate Blanchett production in Australia, immediately thought that he would like to bring it to Lewes and have it performed in our Foyer. We are very pleased that this is possible.

In 2007 Blackbird was awarded the Olivier award for the Best New Play.

Please note this play deals with adult themes.
