Following productions of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Richard Bean’s new comedy Young Marx, Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr present Nightfall, a play written by newcomer Barney Norris. Receiving praise from Michael Frayn, Norris has been hailed as ‘a new writer in his twenties, but already outstanding’ by The Times.

Nightfall is the startling new play about love, loss and grief, following a formidable family who live on a farm outside of Winchester. Whilst Ryan has been struggling to make a living off the land, his sister Lou has returned home to support their mother Jenny after the death of their father.

When Lou’s boyfriend Pete reappears, loaded with money from his job at an oil refinery, Jenny is forced to fight to hold on to her children and the life she had planned out for them.

Written by Barney Norris, whose previous plays include Visitors, Nightfall is directed by Laurie Sansom, previous Artistic Director of the National Theatre of Scotland. Nightfall is the third production to play at the new Bridge Theatre, with performances running from April 28th to June 3rd 2018.
