About: Narvik

“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...”

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.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.

Reviews

★★★★ “Lizzie Nunnery’s thrillingly enigmatic memory play... Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder’s production for Box of Tricks has a chilled, hallucinatory quality... It is the music – a skein of electronically filtered shanties and ballads performed by Nunnery and her regular collaborators Vidar Norheim and Martin Heslop – that is used to most atmospheric effect... A thrillingly theatrical encapsulation of a little-known theatre of war.”
The Guardian

★★★★ “Nunnery’s words and Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder’s direction quickly draw you in. The cast create an atmospheric soundscape, and the plot zigzags like a ship trying to outrun a German U-boat, throwing up some unexpected moments... Compelling, at times almost poetic, storytelling... Narvik’s 80 minutes move swiftly by, and there’s a satisfying (Arctic) circle to Nunnery’s Norse saga.”
Liverpool Echo

★★★★★ “A moving and powerful piece... Haunting and atmospheric.”
The Skinny
