What You'll Get
For $14, today's side deal gets you a general-admission ticket (a $28 value) to the Tuesday, June 1, staging of Blackbird at Everyman Theatre in Station North. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., but general-admission seating is first-come, first-served, so come early. Call ahead to the box office to reserve your tickets.
In keeping with Everyman's tradition of ending a season with a contemporary play that deals with modern issues, David Harrower's Blackbird is a drama that premiered in 2005 and in 2007 won Britain's highest award for a new play, the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play. Derek Goldman directs Everyman's production, starring resident company-member Megan Anderson and David Parkes, in his first Everyman performance. The 90-minute play shows the gripping encounter between an older Ray and younger Luna, and the effects of their taboo relationship as it unfolds at Ray's office. There is no intermission.
- Harrower not only [addressed the play's theme] most profoundly… but he also gifted to his actors and their audiences a pair of characters of great depth and sophistication. – Scotland Critics' Award
