“Birdsong”, a critically acclaimed stage production of Sebastian Faulks’s epic tale of love and war during the time of the Great War is coming to the Royal & Derngate theatre in Northampton from 13 – 18 May.
This brand new adaption is directed by Alastair Whatley and counts award-winning actress, Sarah Jayne Dunn amongst its cast. The story centres on a young Englishman, Stephen Wraysford, in pre-war France who becomes involved in a heated affair with Isabelle Azaire as the Great War breaks out across Europe. As he leads troops through the Battle of the Somme, so his memories of Isabelle help sustain him through the horror of war. This is a dramatic and emotionally intense production that “Captures both the pain and the pity of a war that almost defies comprehension”, according to The Guardian.

Northampton is also home to a vibrant restaurant scene and you will be able to find the perfect spot on Wellingborough Road for a romantic pre-theatre dinner.
