Held in a basement for 16 years, a young woman looks back on her life, and the life of her captor. At least, she thinks it is her life. She thinks it is his.  A riveting exploration into the confused imagination of the captive mind, Blackbird comes to New York in an original environmental production following sell-out seasons in the UK.

"I was just about drowned and would have fallen to pieces by now were it not for him, plucking me out, saving me, I guess."

The US premiere of Lucia Cox's Blackbird, marks the introduction of an exciting new British theater artist to the New York arts community. Cox has a long-standing relationship with Schmucks Theatre, writing the world premiere production of St. Swithins' Day, which was presented at The Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. Heralded as 'a dark and mesmerizing tale of the truly complex nature of love' (The Public Reviews), Blackbird is a Manchester Theatre Award nominee, recipient of the Forever Manchester Award, and was produced in the UK by the prestigious Lowry Theatre, as a part of the 2012 re:Play festival.

'I suspect we will be seeing more of Cox after this impressive debut.'

SCHMUCKS THEATRE is devoted to the creation of challenging contemporary theatre and the incubation of emerging artists in the field. Working predominantly with text - new, classic and found, the company's work has been seen at some of the world's major theatre festivals, and has been highly critically acclaimed since forming in November 2009. Now based between London and New York City, Schmucks Theatre is uniquely engaged with emerging theatre artists in both communities, a relationship which has become central to the development of the company's theatrical aesthetic, reflected in the universal, human qualities that propel the company in their work.

Blackbird is produced by arrangement with House of Orphans and Lucia Cox.
