Norris has cut his teeth in theater, he is the award-winning playwright of Visitors and the Martin Esslin Playwright in Residence at Keble College, Oxford. He has a well-developed talent for making each line vivid, every character tangible.
Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain begins one quiet evening in Salisbury, when the peace is shattered by a serious car crash. At that moment, five lives collide – a flower seller, a schoolboy, an army wife, a security guard, a widower – all facing their own personal disasters. As one of those lives hangs in the balance, the stories of all five unwind, drawn together by connection and coincidence into a web of love, grief, disenchantment and hope that perfectly represents the joys and tragedies of small town life.
