“Blackbird” to run at Theatre Royal

Fifteen years ago, Una and Ray’s relationship had a profound and devastating effect on both their lives.
They haven’t set eyes on each other since. Now in a tense confrontation the past returns to torment them as they unravel their deeply conflicted feelings for each other. Revelations and recriminations fly in this lacerating and controversial story of betrayal, abandonment and lust. And therein sets the scene for ‘Blackbird’ by David Harrower, directed by Ben Barnes, and brought to Waterford by Central Arts, GroundFloor Theatre Company and Theatre Royal Productions for three performances only (June 28th to 30th).
