Blackout tells the story of James, a young man who wakes up in a prison cell with no idea of why he is there. As he recalls the events of his life, he reaches a point where he realises his future lies in his own hands.

This project is an initiative by the Creative Learning department at the Lyric Theatre to employ emerging actors & artists.

The production is currently touring to more than 40 schools across Northern Ireland, in partnership with Hydebank Wood College & the Department of Justice.
