Adapted by Rachel Wagstaff | Starring Max Bowden


There is nothing more than to love and be loved.

How far would you go for love?

Sebastian Faulks’ epic story of love and loss returns to the stage marking the 30th anniversary of the international best-selling novel.


The Telegraph

The critically acclaimed show returns in a brand-new production for 2024. Telling the story of one man’s journey through an all-consuming love affair and into the horror of the First World 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 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 staggering achievement
