Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsals for Lizzie Nunnery's NARVIK

Following their hugely successful touring productions of Plastic Figurines and Chip Shop Chips, Manchester theatre company Box of Tricks is set to tour last year's critically-acclaimed new play with songs, Narvik, by award-winning playwright Lizzie Nunnery. Inspired by tales from naval veterans, and stories of her grandfather's time in the Navy, Nunnery's latest play brings to life a powerful story of love, guilt, heroism and betrayal.

Set in World War II, 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. 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.

The cast will feature Joe Shipman (Ten Tiny Toes and The Way Home, Liverpool Everyman), Lucas Smith (Doctor Faustus, Royal Exchange; A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Hallé), Nina Yndis (Norwegian feature film Glassdukkene and Peaky Blinders) as well musicians Maz O'Connor and Joe Hirons.

Box of Tricks is a Manchester-based theatre company that champions the next generation of playwrights, producing top quality new plays on local and national stages. Narvik is part of Box of Trick's Tenth anniversary season.

Narvik will start its national tour at HOME in Manchester from the 31 January - 4 February and then tour till the 25 March 2017.
