Stage version by Rachel Wagstaff
Directed by Alastair Whatley
Marking the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, Birdsong is the hit, critically acclaimed, 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.
A mesmerising story of love and courage. Set both before and during the Great War, performed by a large ensemble company including Olivier nominated actor and former Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan and Hollyoaks' Jonny Clarke. Following on from last year’s national tour, seen by over 75,000 people, now it is your chance to experience this stunning piece of theatre, live on stage.
