Blackout Songs Information

“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?”

★★★★ 'compulsive to watch' The Guardian
★★★★ 'witty, warm and unpredictable' The Financial Times

★★★★ 'magnetic to watch' BroadwayWorld

Following its sold-out run in the Downstairs space, with three finalist nominations in the OffWestEnd Awards and amazing reviews, Blackout Songs transfers to a reconfigured main stage for a limited season.

A chance encounter at an AA meeting… 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. They should really get sober together and figure it out. 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.

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