Lizzie Nunnery is an award-winning playwright (‘Intemperance’ at Everyman Liverpool and ‘The Swallowing Dark’ at Liverpool Playhouse Studio and Theatre503) and celebrated singer/songwriter. Inspired by tales of Naval veterans, Narvik tells the story of a Liverpudlian man and a Norwegian woman pulled together and torn apart by war as the events of one summer cause ripples across an ocean of time. Fusing live folk music and new writing to create a patchwork of memory and dream, Narvik is a bold new play set during the Second World War that brings to life a powerful story of love, guilt, heroism and betrayal.
