"You know, I was born an egg, a little hard brown egg. But I cracked into a river and my insides came out and 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."​

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. 

Nathan Shreeve directs Lucia Cox’s award-winning* exploration into the confused imagination of the captive mind. Following sell-out seasons in the UK, Blackbird comes to New York in an original environmental production.
