Not About Heroes


by Stephen Macdonald


directed by Alex Epps


This extraordinary and powerfully moving work charts, in retrospect, the relationship between the young Wilfred Owen and his mentor, Siegfried Sassoon. Convalescing from both the physical and emotional injuries sustained whilst fighting in the First World War trenches, the two poets create a bond fostered by a shared wit and a love of words.
