If I was to throw myself beneath that tide . . . If I was to let the water take me, till the cold felt like heat, like love . . . Present day. Liverpool. All alone, an old man falls in a basement and loses consciousness.
World War II. Norway. A young sailor with a heart full of hope, longing and courage falls in love. A Liverpudlian man and a Norwegian woman are pulled together and torn apart by war as the events of one summer cause ripples across an ocean of time. A play with songs, Narvik by Lizzie Nunnery premiered at the Liverpool Playhouse Studio in September 2015 in a Box of Tricks production and was revived for a UK tour in January 2017. Narvik won Best New Play in the 2017 UK Theatre Awards. 'A thrillingly theatrical encapsulation of a little-known theatre of war.' Guardian
