Blackbird at Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre Studio July 13 sees Ray confronted with his past when Una arrives unannounced at his office.

Guilt, rage, and raw emotions run high as they recollect their relationship 15 years ago, when she was 12 and he was 40. David Harrower’s gripping drama sees Nick Bagnall return to acting by playing Ray.

Coronation Street star Harriet Bibby is opposite him, taking a week off from the cobbles to be a part of this intense play.
