Birdsong: Original Theatre Company

Following 2010’s West End hit, this exciting, brand new adaptation marks the very first touring production of the play. A dynamic cast of 12 shape Faulks’s much loved wartime epic into an intimate story of love and sacrifice, set against the backdrop of the Western Front.

In pre-war France, young Englishman Stephen Wraysford embarks on a passionate and dangerous affair with his host’s wife, Isabelle Azaire. As civil unrest mounts and war breaks in on the idyll of his former life, Stephen finds he must now lead his men through the carnage of the Battle of the Somme and the sprawling tunnels that lie deep underground. Faced with unprecedented horror, the war-hardened Stephen clings to the shrinking memory of Isabelle as his world explodes around him.

This production is not recommended for those under 12 years of age.

Recognising the relevance this story has with the on-going impact of the conflict of war on everyday life the tour is proud to be supporting Help for Heroes.
