The Band Back Together

Written & Directed by Barney Norris

A new play about growing up, coming home and making noise.

The Band Back Together arrives in London after a spring tour of England and Wales. Barney Norris (Visitors, Eventide, We Started To Sing) returns to the Arcola with a raucous and tender new story full of music.

Joe, Ross and Ellie used to be in a band. They were pretty good too, making waves across a rugged patchwork of pubs and clubs. But time has thrown the three friends far from their younger selves. Back together for one night only to play a benefit gig in their home town of Salisbury, they find a community reeling from an infamous poisoning and a pandemic. And as they rehearse the old songs together, their stories and secrets must also be excavated.
