Ray, fifty-six, has a new identity and a new life, thinking he can't be found. Una, twenty-seven, has a new life too and has just arrived unannounced at Ray's office. Raw emotions run high as they both attempt to reconstruct the sexually abusive relationship they had fifteen years ago, when she was twelve and he was forty-one. Blackbird is a story about living in the aftermath of rape and abuse—about the struggle of demanding a new future while carrying the weight of a traumatic past.
Called “one of the most powerful dramas of the century” by The New York Times, Blackbird is "a brilliant and tantalizing study in sexual obsession that leaves one both shaken and stirred” (The Guardian).
Content advisory: This show discusses rape and sexual abuse.
