Not About Heroes
21/10/2014 - 25/10/2014
Derby Live

On this unique occasion of the anniversary of the First World War, award winning Feelgood presents Stephen MacDonald’s inspirational must see play.

It is a timeless and uncompromising exploration of courage, of humanity and an intense friendship forged through poetry and the power of words overshadowed by a terrible and all-consuming war.


During the First World War, two of England’s greatest twentieth century war poets met at Craiglockhart War Hospital, Edinburgh. Siegfried Sassoon was a decorated war hero hospitalised after protesting against the continuing war. Wilfred Owen was a victim of shell shock and accused of cowardice. Returning to the front, Sassoon was shot in the head but survived. Owen went on to win the military cross, die in the trenches seven days before Armistice Day and receive posthumous fame as England’s greatest war poet.


Weaving their great poetry including: Anthem for Doomed Youth, Mental Cases, Strange Meeting, Exposure and The Dead Beat this emotionally powerful and often witty play tells the moving story of the friendship that transformed them both.


The Festival will take place in the Festival Tent in the Market Place, The Guildhall Theatre and The Old Bell Hotel.
