Based on Sebastian Faulks's international best-selling novel, the play tells the story of one man's journey through an all consuming love affair and into the horror of the First World War. 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. 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. 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. The world premiere of this production is directed by Trevor Nunn.
