Marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, Birdsong is the critically acclaimed stage show based on Sebastian Faulks’s best-selling novel.
In pre-war France, Englishman Stephen Wraysford embarks on a dangerous affair with the beautiful Isabelle Azaire turning their worlds upside down. As 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 the sprawling tunnels that lie deep underground.
A mesmerising story of love and courage set both before and during the Great War.
Now is your chance to experience this stunning piece of theatre live on stage.
★★★★ "Moving, gripping, dramatically electrifying and outstanding" The Times
