In David Harrower’s award-winning drama, a man is forced to confront his past when the woman he sexually abused 15 years earlier shows up at his work.

Verb Theatre opens its season with the haunting, powerful, and incendiary work, Blackbird. Directed by Jamie Dunsdon, and featuring Curt McKinstry and Camille Pavlenko, this explosive drama comes to Calgary after turns in New York and Broadway. The show follows an uneasy reunion between 55-year-old Ray and 27-year-old Una as they engage in a long and difficult confrontation.

Blackbird runs November 9 to 18, 2017 at the Motel Theatre, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE). The show contains extremely adult themes and is not suitable for younger viewers. Parental discretion is advised.
