The past returns, taunting.
An explosive Tony® Award-winning drama about confronting the past. Fifteen years after a forbidden relationship between Ray, then 40, and Una, then 12, ended, she shows up unannounced at his office door. He becomes unhinged and she is ready to take back her power. Raw emotions ignite and their lives are forever changed as they are both forced to face their personal demons.
April has been designated as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the Fulton Theatre is thrilled to partner with The YWCA Lancaster’s Sexual Assault & Prevention Counseling Center (SAPCC) on our production of Blackbird! As Lancaster County’s designated rape crisis center, SAPCC counselors are specifically trained to work in the area of trauma with those who have experienced sexual violence, as well as their loved ones. Immediately following every performance of Blackbird, a trained sexual assault counselor and educator will facilitate a brief talk back to assist patrons in processing the themes of the play. It’s also a great way to gain additional information about a local non profit that’s doing great work. Please check out the YWCA’s website for upcoming events!
Attention: this play contains explicit sexual language and behaviors.
