An epic talk of love and war

This critically acclaimed version of Sebastian Faulks's bestselling novel is a mesmerising story of love, courage and sacrifice.

In pre-war France, a young Englishman Stephen Wraysford embarks on a passionate and dangerous affair with the beautiful Isabelle that turns their world upside down.

As the war breaks out over the idyll of his former life, Stephen must lead his men through the carnage of the Battle Of The Somme. Faced with the unprecedented horror of the war, Stephen clings to the memory of Isabelle as his world explodes around him.

Recently aired over Christmas on BBC 1, this new version follows on from the hit West End production.
