A play about the meeting and friendship between the great war poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen. Read More >
Set in a Scottish war hospital during WW1, Not About Heroes is the story of the meeting and developing friendship between the celebrated writer Siegfried Sassoon and the then unknown poet Wilfred Owen, who was suffering from shell shock. It was this profoundly creative and liberating friendship that finally unlocked Owen’s poetic genius to express the horror and pity of war; a war which claimed his life exactly one week before the armistice.
Not About Heroes is suitable for ages 14+
