Not About Heroes

Not About Heroes

  • 16 — 18 September 2014

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 an exhilarating and uncompromising play which explores the themes of love, war and a friendship that changed the face of British poetry.

Private Peaceful

Private Peaceful

  • ,
  • 15 — 16 October 2014 1:30pm

Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year, Private Peaceful is by former Children’s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo, award-winning author of War Horse.

Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night he looks back at his short but joyful past growing up in rural Devon: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line.

‘Private Peaceful at the theatre is a moving experience that not only tells the story of a young soldier’s final day in World War One, but perhaps more importantly conveys the strength of human spirit.’ – Michael Morpurgo
