Not About Heroes at Trafalgar Studio's is set in 1917.  After protesting against the continuance of the war, poet and military cross winner Siegfried Sassoon is sent to Craiglockhart War Hospital to silence him.  There he meets shell shocked

 

Lt Wilfred Owen and they begin a friendship that transforms them both and creates some of the twentieth century’s greatest war poetry, including Anthem for Doomed Youth.  Both return to the front.  Sassoon is shot in the head but survives, Owen is machine gunned to death a week before the Armistice.

 

★★★★ 'See if for poetry in action, you will not be disappointed' The Guardian

 

An exquisite exploration of courage, of humanity and a timeless celebration of friendship set against the brutality of war.
