Booking to 6 May 2023
Blackout Songs – Joe White’s compassionate and unflinching new play about love, addiction and memory – returns to Hampstead Theatre for four weeks only.

What's the story of Blackout Songs?
A chance encounter at an AA meeting and they’re drawn to one another, into a crazy passionate bond. Then later, once they’re drinking again, they both have this almost-feeling that they might have met before. They should really get sober together and figure it out. Maybe they will – just after one last quick drink…
Who is in the cast of Blackout Songs?
The cast includes Alex Austin (I Hate Suzie, Sky; Gundog, Royal Court) and Rebecca Humphries (Ten Percent, Amazon Studios; Wild Honey, Hampstead Theatre).
