Not About Heroes - YouTube | Thespie

Stephen MacDonald’s play interweaves extracts from diaries, letters and poems to paint a vivid and moving picture of the friendship between Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, as well as the conflict that brought them together. Featuring haunting music, innovative design and two powerful central performances, Not About Heroes is both exhilarating and uncompromising in its exploration of love, war and a friendship that changed the face of British poetry.
