Blackout is a 45 minute, critically-acclaimed smack in the face.

Developed at Platform in Easterhouse, it is inspired by the stories of a young offender from Glasgow following writer Davey Anderson’s experience in interviewing a teenager who had been charged with attempted murder at the age of 15. The show’s mix of striking physicality and Anderson’s hard-hitting text had a profound impact on the audience when it premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010, provoking rave reviews from the press – including four star reviews from The List, The Scotsman and What’s On Stage a five star review from Three Weeks.

Davey Anderson is former Director in Residence with the National Theatre of Scotland and was Associate Director on the multi-award winning production Black Watch. He is a previous recipient of the Arches Award for Stage Directors (now Platform 18) for his show Snuff.

ThickSkin Limited are a London-based company working with newly unearthed artists and established talent to create innovative, heart-stopping new work which challenges and inspires audiences.

Blackout was the winner of an Arches Brick Award in 2010.
