Birdsong

Birdsong


Marking the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, Birdsong is the critically acclaimed hit stage show based on the world famous novel by Sebastian Faulks.

In pre-war France, a young Englishman Stephen Wraysford embarks on a passionate and dangerous affair with the beautiful Isabelle Azaire that turns their world upside down.

As the war breaks out over the idyll of his former life, Stephen must lead his men through the carnage of the Battle of the Somme and through the sprawling tunnels that lie deep underground. Faced with the unprecedented horror of the war Stephen clings to the memory of Isabelle as his world explodes around him.

A mesmerising story of love and courage. 

Post Show talk: Wed 18 July with Sebastian Faulks author of Birdsong. 

Sebastian Faulks will be making a very special cameo apparance in the Wed and Thu evening shows.

Duration: 2 hours 30mins with interval
