Marking the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, critically-acclaimed stage show Birdsong returns to Everyman Theatre, offering a compelling story of love and courage.
Rachel Wagstaff’s stage adaptation of Sebastian Faulks’ world-famous novel will run in Cheltenham from Monday 19 to Saturday 24 February 2018, having been hailed by The Times as ‘moving, gripping, dramatically electrifying and outstanding’.
Set before and during the Great War, the mesmerising story follows young Englishman Stephen Wraysford, who begins a passionate and dangerous affair with Isabelle Azaire that turns their world upside down.
As the war breaks out over the idyll of his former life, Stephen must lead his men through carnage, clinging to the memory of Isabelle as the world explodes around him.
Sure to be a highlight on Everyman Theatre’s calendar, the captivating story has currently been seen by more than 200,000 people and sold out when it last came to Cheltenham.
