Blackbird, according to press notes, "tells the story of Una and Ray. Fifteen years earlier they had a relationship and haven’t set eyes on each other since. Now she’s found him again."
Blackbird premiered at the Edinburgh International Festival in 2005, then transferred to London in 2006 and won the Olivier Award for Best New Play, in a production directed by Peter Stein. In 2007 the drama got its New York premiere at Manhattan Theatre Club in a production starring Daniels and Allison Pill, directed by Mantello. The play has been staged around the world, including South Africa, Australia, Italy and Canada.
This production marks Daniels' sixth Broadway appearance. He was nominated for a 2009 Tony Award for his performance in God of Carnage.
Williams has been nominated for Academy Awards three times, including one for her performance as Marilyn Monroe in My Weekend With Marilyn. She made her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in the 2014 revival of Cabaret.
Blackbird is produced on Broadway by Scott Rudin.
