Poignant, dramatic and beautifully designed, this is a story that will stay with you forever.
Wiltshire. 1915. As the shadow of war falls over the Wiltshire landscape, a young couple finds itself caught up in the turmoil of troubled times.
For generations, John and Anna’s families have made a living by working the land. Growing up in back-to-back cottages, everyone expects them to marry. Now, however, with nearly half a million young soldiers pouring into the county, the world seems so much bigger than they had ever imagined and the future feels far from certain.
Set in a village on the edge of Salisbury Plain, Echo’s End is a story about two Wiltshire families and the seismic changes which altered their lives and the identity of their county forever.
Award-winning playwright and novelist Barney Norris has been heralded as ‘one of our most exciting young writers’ (The Times). His debut novel Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain became a Times bestseller. Don't miss this opportunity to see his brand new play on the Main Stage at Salisbury Playhouse.
This production is supported by Frank and Elizabeth Brenan
