BLACKOUT SONGS

You told me you loved me, once. You said you carried me. You remember that? You still carry me? Or did you drop me, somewhere along the line?

Details

A chance encounter at an AA meeting and it’s like a switch is thrown: they’re drawn to one another, into a crazy passionate bond. Then later, once they’re drinking again, they both have this almost-feeling that they might have met before – could even have been together, sometime in the past… Obviously that’s impossible, so they must be thinking of somebody else. They should really get sober together and figure it out: that would be a worthwhile project. Maybe they will - just after one last quick drink…

Joe White is a former Channel 4 Playwriting Award winner whose play Mayfly (Orange Tree) won Most Promising New Playwright at the OffWestEnd Awards. Guy Jones, who directed Mayfly, returns to Hampstead following his triumphant production of Ruby Thomas’ Either.

The cast includes Alex Austin (I Hate Suzie, Sky; Gundog, Royal Court) and Rebecca Humphries (Ten Percent, Amazon Studios; Wild Honey, Hampstead Theatre). 

Blackout Songs is a T.S. Eliot Foundation commission.
