The trailer has been released for the innovative online production of BIRDSONG, adapted and abridged by Rachel Wagstaff from Sebastian Faulks's acclaimed novel. Birdsong will be available from 1 July - the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme - for 72 hours.
This online production has been rehearsed and filmed from scratch and is fully costumed and with specially created digital scenery. Everyone has filmed from their own homes during lockdown. Costumes, make-up, mics and lights were sent to the actors and they were given a crash course in how to use everything!
