You watch spellbound as Nunnery’s sweeping saga unravels, time-traveling across pre-war Merseyside, Nazi-occupied Norway, freezing seas, below-decks tensions and the long-distance love affair between Jim and Else destroyed by the deadly business of war - and all subtly interwoven with a maritime mythology of mermaids and sea monsters.

A spellbinding story of wartime lovers lost at sea - ★★★★★

Full Review

Narvik is not like anything else I have heard in the theatre… Full of rich material… A compressed exploration of the effects of war, reaching out to a language other than words - ★★★★

The Observer

As impressive piece of studio theatre that you are likely to catch this year… Taut, moving and utterly absorbing, this is theatre at its very best - ★★★★★

Yorkshire Post

It has a dreamlike eeriness ? and it is acted with a raw and intimate directness… It has a tang and a tenderness that linger - ★★★★
