Take part in the first Military Times Quiz for a chance to win tickets to a new London stage adaptation of Sebastian Faulks’s classic wartime novel, Birdsong.

Birdsong has been adapted for the stage for the very first time by Rachel Wagstaff.  The bestselling and critically-acclaimed novel tells an epic love story set against the turbulent backdrop of the First World War.  One of the nation’s favourite books, it takes some of its inspiration from the soldier Wilfred Owen’s 1918 poem, ‘Strange Meeting’.

The production, starring British actor and filmstar Ben Barnes (Stardust, Easy Virtue) as the hero Stephen Wraysford, is directed by Trevor Nunn for a limited run until the 15th January, at the Comedy Theatre, London.  For more information on the play itself, visit the official website.

Military Times have two pairs of top-price tickets (including complimentary interval drinks and show programme) worth over £100, to give away to the lucky winners.  To take part, simply fill in our Birdsong themed multiple choice quiz below, before the 31st December.
