“If I was to throw myself beneath that tide... If I was to let the water take me, 'til the cold felt like heat, like love...”

Overview

Present day. Liverpool. All alone, an old man falls in a basement and loses consciousness.

World War Two. Norway. A young sailor with a heart full of hope, longing and courage falls in love.

Narvik tells the story of a Liverpudlian man and a Norwegian woman pulled together and torn apart by war as the events of one summer cause ripples across an ocean of time.

Award-winning playwright Lizzie Nunnery explores her dual creative strands – writer and singer/songwriter – to conjure a play where music and words meet, creating a patchwork of memory and dream, truth and fantasy. Inspired by tales of Naval veterans, Narvik brings to life a powerful story of love, guilt, heroism and betrayal.

Critic reviews

A thrillingly theatrical encapsulation of a little-known theatre of war.

Guardian

Compelling, at times almost poetic, storytelling.
