A Director’s View: Paul Levy talks to Sam Chittenden about Blackbird


Sam Chittenden directs Blackbird for Pretty Villain Productions playing at the Rialto Theatre. “Blackbird charts the tense confrontation between Ray and Una, who has found him again 15 years after the abrupt ending of their relationship. As recriminations fly, we see that both are irrevocably damaged. This taut and unflinching drama builds relentlessly to its explosive conclusion.” Sam discusses her process of directing, providing an inspiring and revealing glimpse of intimate theatre-making.
