Try and do something with your life. Be deliberate, you know?

A love song, an elegy, a celebration - Eventide tells the story of three people whose worlds are disappearing.

John is a landlord forced to sell up; Liz is a church organist who can't get a gig; Mark takes what work he can just to pay the rent.

Their tales unfold round the back of a pub hidden deep in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. But is that heart still beating?

“Immense.. By pretending to no grandiosity Norris reaches out further and deeper into tradition, belief, identity, love... Superb”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Barney Norris's new play is a gentle and moving piece of writing, a study of life's losses, a hymn. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“A gentle wistfulness, coupled with a surprising tenacity, suffuses Alice Hamilton’s confident production. Hugely recommended. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Brilliantly perceptive... Hyperrealistic performances... Democratic, convivial and scented with stale disappointment. ”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Beautifully poetic... Delicately nuanced performances in a play that captures all the still, sad music of humanity. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Barney Norris’s wise and witty second full-length play – a kind of budget, beer-garden cousin to Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem. ”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Characters...painted with intimacy and tenderness... This microcosm of human struggles is not an entirely satisfying drama. ”

What's on Stage (Other reviewers)

“A gentle, melancholy rumination... Hamilton’s touring production is pitch perfect, with delicately inflected performances. ”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)
