The first trailer for a new, virtual version of BIRDSONG, starring Max Bowden, has been released.

The show has been created in isolation and will be presented online in July.

Adapted from Sebastian Faulks’ award-winning novel by Rachel Wagstaff, the piece, directed by Alastair Whatley and Charlotte Peters, has been filmed by cast members in isolation in costume, with virtual sets, sound design and lighting. Max will play Private Tipper.

The show itself, created in association with the British Legion, follows a series of individuals both at home and on the Western Front during the First World War, and will feature narration and an introduction by Faulks.

It will be available from Wednesday 1 July 7.00pm BST to Saturday 4 July 11.59pm here, with tickets available now.
