Nina with lantern Martin with mandolin and beater Lizzie and Nina

NARVIK at Liverpool Playhouse, Sept 1015 – written by Lizzie Nunnery, music by Martin Heslop and Vidar Norheim, directed by Hannah Tyrell-Pinder, designed by Maeve Black. Produced by Box of Tricks and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse.

The Guardian – 4 stars – “…..But it is the music – a skein of electronically filtered shanties and ballads performed by Nunnery and her regular collaborators Vidar Norheim and Martin Heslop – that is used to most atmospheric effect. It’s almost a tease, as fragments of melody mysteriously appear and suddenly melt away, with the confidence of a writer who has talent to burn.”
