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…

The cast includes Alex Austin (I Hate Suzie, Sky; Gundog, Royal Court) and Rebecca Humphries (Ten Percent, Amazon Studios; Wild Honey, Hampstead Theatre). 



Who are the creative team of Blackout Songs?

Director Guy Jones will be reunited with designer Anisha Fields and lighting designer Christopher Nairne. Sound and composition will be by Max Pappenheim and Holly Khan with movement by Iskandar R. Sharazuddin.
