Not About Heroes

Not About Heroes

3.5 (2) · Fringe Theatre, Contemporary

Stephen MacDonald’s Fringe First winning play about the unique friendship between celebrated World War One poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon.


They met at Craiglockhart Hospital in 1917, and bonded over a mutual hatred of war and love of poetry.

This production won a Best Actor accolade at the Wales Theatre Awards for Daniel Llewelyn Williams, who reprises his role here as Sassoon alongside Owain Gwynn as Owen. This strictly limited London run concludes an acclaimed two-year tour, commemorating the centenary of the Armistice.

Critic reviews

Macdonald's play doesn't spare the public any grief showing more than the birth of some of the most harrowing poems of the 20th Century
