Hub Theatre Group performs difficult drama "Blackbird"

The Hub Theatre Group is opening David Harrower's controversial drama "Blackbird" this weekend. The play tells the story of a young woman who tracks down the man who sexually abused her as a pre-teen and confronts him. 

Hub Theatre Group worked with various survivor groups in Lubbock to learn more about these tragic situations to get a better idea of how to present these characters. Director Paula Chanda explained why the group chose to perform this,

"When I read the script - obviously - I was a little disturbed by the subject matter," she said. "At the same time, I was intrigued by how honest these characters were approached in the script."

"Blackbird" is being performed in the Talkington Fine Arts Center at All Saints. More information here.
