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?

Arcola [Fringe,Off West End]

“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)
