The Original Theatre Company returned to the Devonshire Park Theatre on Wednesday evening with a stunning performance of Sebastian Faulks’ First World War novel “Birdsong” which has been specially adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff. This production marked the Premiere of a nationwide tour which will be going on until July and was once again produced and directed by Alastair Whatley, the Artistic Director of the Company, who provided the audience with a great theatrical experience, not only with the superb acting of the cast but also with a wonderful set design, authentic costumes, atmospheric lighting and sound effects. A crowded bar showed their appreciation for a production which played to an almost full house and to which we wish well for the rest of the tour.
