Blackbird is a 2005 one-act (90 minute) play by Scottish playwright David Harrower. It depicts the meeting between a young woman and a middle-aged man with whom, fifteen years earlier, at the age of 12, she had had a sexual relationship.

He has managed to establish a reasonably successful new life under another name, but Una recognized him in a photograph and tracked him down. But why has she suddenly appeared after all this time? What does she want from him?
