Win tickets to see the brilliant Birdsong...
Sebastian Faulks’s international best-selling novel is now a major West End hit starring Ben Barnes and is playing for a strictly limited run until 15 January 2011.
**** ‘Brilliant theatre. Ingeniously realised. Beautifully played.’ The Independent
Birdsong tells the story of one man’s journey through an all consuming love affair and into the horror of the First World War.
While staying as the guest of a factory owner in pre-First World War France, Stephen Wraysford embarks on a passionate affair with Isabelle, the wife of his host. The affair changes them both for ever.
A few years later Stephen finds himself back in the same part of France but this time as a soldier at the Battle of the Somme, the bloodiest encounter in British military history. As his men die around him, Stephen turns to his enduring love for Isabelle for the strength to continue and to save something for future generations.
For the first time, this beautiful and haunting story about love, courage and the endurance of the human spirit is brought to the stage in a version by Rachel Wagstaff. The world premiere of this production is directed by Trevor Nunn.
Stephen Wraysford is played by Ben Barnes. His film credits include Stardust, Easy Virtue, the title role in Dorian Gray and the role of Prince Caspian in the Chronicles of Narnia films. Ben’s West End appearances include the National Theatre production of The History Boys.
Birdsong is playing at the Comedy Theatre, Panton Street, London.
