Overview

As a young man, Stephen Wraysford was caught up in an all-consuming love affair in Amiens, France. As the First World War unfolds, Stephen finds himself pulled closer and closer back to Amiens, back to the Valley of the Somme.

This powerful and compelling story about courage, love, friendship and loss is brought to the stage for the first time in a version by Rachel Wagstaff.
