On Monday evening we were invited to attend the opening night of ‘Birdsong’ at The Courtyard. We had a fantastic time watching the stage production of this very moving story.
The play – Marking the centenary 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 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 underground. Faced with the unprecedented horror of the war Stephen clings to the memory of Isabelle as his world explodes around him. A mesmerizing story of love and courage. Set both before and during the Great War.
Following on from the 2013/14 National tours, seen by over 130,000 people, now it is our chance to experience this stunning show live on stage in Hereford!
