Review: The Glasshouse @ 53Two, Manchester

The production was last shown in 2014 (the centenary of the beginning of World War One) in London and was met to rave reviews, being nominated for multiple OFFIE’s and winning one.

Part love story, part tribute to the astonishing bravery of the sappers who tunnelled underneath battlegrounds, Birdsong is as good a commemoration of the immense sacrifices made during the First World War as you will ever see.
