‘I’m not taking for granted that we’re back on stage, so I will not complain about anything,” says actor Maeve Fitzgerald when I ask how she found her recent tour of Blackbird, a two-hander by David Harrower about a woman confronting the man who abused her as 12-year-old.

The show is very intense – 80 minutes on stage, no interval, no let-up. It is demanding of performers and audience alike, and memorable for that.
