Imagine you wake up and you’re in a jail cell. You go up to the door. You bang your fists. Screaming. Shouting. What am I doing here?

15-year-old Jamie wakes up in a prison cell and can’t remember how he got there…

Blackout is a hard-hitting play about getting bullied, fighting back, trying to make a name for yourself, turning vicious, doing something stupid, losing everything, then finding your way again. It was performed and stage managed by a company of professionals and ex-prisoners.
