Birdsong

by Sebastian Faulks,
A stage adaptation by Rachel Wagstaff

Production synopsis Birdsong is the critically acclaimed play, based on the world famous novel by Sebastian Faulks; it has been rarely seen outside the professional circuit so we are very privileged to be able to perform it.

Northern France, 1910, a young Englishman begins a passionate and dangerous love affair with the beautiful wife of his employer, with consequences neither of them can foresee.

When war comes, and he leads his men through the carnage of the Somme and deep underground, through the tunnels dug by his soldiers, he is tortured by his memories.

This is a mesmerising story of love and passion, courage and loss, for the lovers and for those around them, in the trenches and in the town of Amiens.
