Not About Heroes
10 October 2014 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 pm
Studio@QT at the Queen’s Theatre, Barnstaple presents Not about Heroes on Friday 10th October at 7.30pm
‘I am not concerned with Poetry. My subject is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity.’ Wilfred Owen
Not About Heroes is the unforgettable story of two of the finest ‘Great War’ poets, Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, their friendship, their inter-dependency, their poetry. Through the letters and poems of these two men, Stephen MacDonald’s acclaimed play paints a vivid and moving picture of their friendship and the conflict that brought them together.
One hundred years on from the beginning of the First World War, Not About Heroes is both exhilarating and uncompromising in its exploration of love, war and a friendship that changed the face of British poetry.
