Not About Heroes

Not About Heroes - World  War  One  poets  Wilfred  Owen  and  Siegfried  Sassoon

 Thursday 18th October

Corn Exchange 7:30 pm | £15 R

Commemorating the 100th anniversay of the armistice to end the Great War, we present Stephen MacDonald's award-winning play about the unique friendship between celebrated World War One poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon. They met at Craiglockhart Hospital in 1917, and bonded over a mutual hatred of war and love of poetry.

The show is on the first part of a world tour commemorating the centenary of both the meeting depicted in the play, and of the Armistice.

"Tim  Baker's  production  creates  an  engaging  delineation  between  two  entirely  different  personalities  united  by  a  common  vocation  and  some  truly  hellish  experiences."  The  Guardian
