Not About HeroesNot About Heroes

The Ron Barber Studio Theatre

14 - 21 June 2003 @ 7.45pm

Charting the meeting and subsequent friendship of the two War poets, Siegfreid Sassoon and Wilfred Owen. Owen is coached by Sassoon to become arguably the greatest War poet Britain has ever known.

What the audience were heard to say of the production:

Superb, very moving; 
The Crescent Theatre at its very best; 
I’ve seen three productions of Not About Heroes and this rates as the best; 
The two actors work very well together.

From Birmingham Evening Mail press review by TONY COLLINS: Monday June 16th

...Peter Dickson and Andrew Butterworth are equally outstanding as the only two characters in Stephen MacDonald's poignant evocative play, which looks back from 1932.
