A mesmerising story of love, courage and sacrifice is now brought to the stage in this critically acclaimed version of Sebastian Faulks’s bestselling novel. An epic tale of love and war set both before and during the Great War

In pre war France, a young Englishman Stephen Wraysford embarks on a passionate and dangerous affair with the beautiful Isabelle Azaire that turns their worlds upside down.

As the 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 through the sprawling tunnels that lie deep under ground.

Faced with the unprecedented horror of the War Stephen clings to the memory of Isabelle as his world explodes around him.

Recently aired on BBC 1 and following on from the hit West End production in 2010, this brand new adaptation marks the very first touring production of the play.

Performed by a dynamic ensemble company including award winning actress Sarah Jayne Dunn (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Hollyoaks), Charlie G Hawkins (Eastenders), Arthur Bostrom of ‘Allo, Allo’ fame, Tim Van Eyken (War Horse) and introducing newcomer Jonathan Smith as Stephen Wraysford.

“Captures both the pain and the pity of a war that almost defies comprehension.”

Michael Billington, The Guardian

“The play poignantly intermingles ghosts of past and present, and fully expresses the black poetry of this carnage…and the landscape it inhabits.”

Michael Coveney, The Independent
