About Birdsong

A novel by Sebastian Faulks, stage version by Rachel Wagstaff, Directed by Trevor Nunn.

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 terrible story about love, courage and the endurance of the human spirit is brought to the stage in a version by Rachel Wagstaff.

Stephen Wraysford will be played by Ben Barnes. His film credits include the role of Prince Caspian in two of the Chronicles of Narnia films: "Prince Caspian" and the soon to be released "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" as well the title role in Oliver Parker´s Dorian Gray, and roles in Stardust  and Easy Virtue. Ben was last in the West End in the National Theatre´s production of The History Boys, in which he played Dakin.

The world premiere of this productionof BIRDSONG is directed by Trevor Nunn and performed at The Comedy Theatre, London.
