Summary

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
Critic Reviews

A moody multi-layered memory tale of love, loss and lonely survival... You watch spellbound as Nunnery’s sweeping saga unravels, time-traveling across pre-war Merseyside, Nazi-occupied Norway, freezing seas, below-decks tensions and the long-distance love affair between Jim and Else destroyed by the deadly business of war – and all subtly interwoven with a maritime mythology of mermaids and sea monsters.
