Echo’s End: A Wiltshire Love Story

Barney Norris
 

Wiltshire. 1915.

As the shadow of war falls over the Wiltshire landscape, a young couple finds itself caught up in the turmoil of troubled times. For generations, John and Anna’s families have made a living by working the land. Growing up in back-to-back cottages, everyone expects them to marry. Now, however, with nearly half a million young soldiers pouring into the country, the world seems so much bigger than they had ever imagined and the future feels far from certain.

Critics Circle and Off West End Award-winning playwright and novelist Barney Norris has been heralded as ‘one of our most exciting young writers’ ( Times), ‘a rare and precious talent’ ( Evening Standard) ‘a writer of grace and luminosity’ ( The Stage) who is ‘fast turning into the quiet voice of Britain’ ( British Theatre Guide).

Eventide

Barney Norris
 
A love song, an elegy, a celebration: Eventide tells the story of three people whose worlds are disappearing. John is a landlord forced to sell up; Liz is a church organist who can't get a gig; Mark takes what work he can just to pay the rent. Their tales unfold round the back of a pub hidden deep in the heart of the Hampshire countryside - a heart that doesn't seem to be beating any more.

Eventide is the latest collaboration between playwright Barney Norris and director Alice Hamilton following the sell-out success of Visitors in 2014. Greeted as 'extraordinary' ( The Guardian) and 'heartbreaking' ( New York Times), Visitors won the Critics' Circle and Off West End Most Promising Playwright Awards.

Reviews

'Barney Norris strikes gold again. Like a diligent bartender, Norris has a talent for polishing the ordinary, buffing it up with a damp cloth until it shines and sings.'  Time Out

'A play that captures all the still, sad music of humanity.'   Guardian

Visitors

Barney Norris
 

On a farmhouse at the edge of Salisbury Plain, a family is falling apart. Stephen can’t afford to put his mother into care; Arthur can’t afford to stop working and look after his wife. When a young stranger with blue hair moves in to care for Edie as her mind unravels, the family are forced to ask: are we living the way we wanted?

Visitors is a haunting, beautiful look at the way our lives slip past us.

While We're Here

Barney Norris
 

Eddie and Carol were lovers once, but their lives went in different directions. Now they meet again on a park bench in a town full of memories, and find something still burns between them.

On the country's southern margin where the towns give way to the English Channel, both search for the centre of their lives. Will they find a way to let go of the past for the sake of their futures?
