Marking the 100th anniversary 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.

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 through the sprawling tunnels that lie deep underground. Faced with the unprecedented horror of war, Stephen clings to the memory of Isabelle as his world explodes around him.

A mesmerising story of love and courage, set both before and during the Great War.

This compelling production has been seen by over 200,000 people, and now it is your chance to experience this stunning piece of theatre live on stage.
