A few weeks ago my friend and I went to check out William Petersen's, former star of CBS-TV's CSI, play Blackbird. The play was SOLD OUT and I was lucky enough to score tickets on Craig's List.

British vernacular for "jailbird," Blackbird is a real-time account of the awkward reunion of Ray and Una, 15 years after a passionate affair when he was 40 and she was a minor. Ray is confronted with his past when Una arrives unannounced at his workplace. Guilt, rage and raw emotions run high as they recollect their forbidden relationship.
