Blackout Songs

by Joe White

Nominated for an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre

“Standing ovations at London theaters are drearily routine these days, but I experienced one a few weeks ago that felt genuinely impassioned. I’m thinking of the fervent audience response to a new two-character play...I can easily see international producers snapping up “Blackout Songs”...But the director Guy Jones’s production sets the bar high.”
