Synopsis


“I wish there could be a day where families came together and just said it all to each other. Because then everyone would know it all, and there'd be nothing left to hurt anyone.”


Sussex. London. Wiltshire. Northamptonshire. Wales.


Over three decades, a family spreads across the country, and the chord they once made together starts to fray.


How will the distance growing between them change the music of their lives?


Five years after making his name at Arcola with Visitors and Eventide, Barney Norris returns with a brand new play.


We Started To Sing is a love song to the people who raised him, and a hymn to the bravery of our brief lives.


Background


Barney Norris' previous work at Arcola: Eventide (2015) and Visitors (2014), which won the Critics' Circle Award and the Off West End Award for Most Promising Playwright.


His other plays include Nightfall (Bridge Theatre); While We're Here (Bush Theatre); Echo's End (Salisbury Playhouse).


His novels include Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain, Turning for Home and The Vanishing Hours.
