BLACKBIRD

by David Harrower
Directed by Jamie Dunsdon
Featuring Curt McKinstry and Camille Pavlenko

Fifteen years ago Una and Ray had a relationship.
They haven’t set eyes on each other since.
Now, fifteen years later, she’s found him.

In David Harrower’s explosive drama, a man is forced to confront his past when it unexpectedly shows up at his workplace. Love and guilt turn poisonous as the couple recollect a passionate but ill-fated affair they had 15 years earlier.  After star turns in New York, Toronto, and London, this award-winning drama everyone’s talking about is finally coming to Calgary!
