Stephen Yoakam and Tracey Maloney electrify in Pillsbury House’s staging of the Olivier-winning Blackbird at the Guthrie’s Dowling Studio.

Director Stephen DiMenna, who agrees with playwright David Harrower that the play is not about sexual abuse or pedophilia, says, “It’s really about two lost souls who 15 years ago were lost—she as a 12-year-old, he as a 40-year old.
