THE WELLSPRING

A tale about the stories that shape us… 

Directed by Jude Christian, this timely and intimate work from award-winning playwright Barney Norris (The Remains Of The Day) and his father, the internationally acclaimed pianist and broadcaster David Owen Norris, examines that age-old story of a boy and his dad, and how they can relate to one another, in every sense of the word and exploring the people and stories that shape us.  

 

Their performances will be accompanied by both folk and classical music performed by David and Barney, creating a scrapbook style collage of the pair's lives together.

★★★★★ 'an extraordinary elegy to fathers, families and the creative spirit' What's On Stage

★★★★ 'an endearingly cranky real-life father-and-son drama... Brave, Tender, Affecting' The Telegraph

★★★★ 'Gorgeous' The Times
