Echo's End

Echo's End

Synopsis

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 country, the world seems so much bigger than they had ever imagined and the future feels far from certain.

Echo’s End is a story about two Wiltshire families and the seismic changes which altered their lives and the identity of their country forever.

Critics Circle and Off West End Award-winning playwright and novelist Barney Norris has been heralded as ‘one of our most exciting young writers’ (Times), ‘a rare and precious talent’ (Evening Standard) ‘a writer of grace and luminosity’ (The Stage) who is ‘fast turning into the quiet voice of Britain’ (British Theatre Guide).
