"On the morning of the fourth of November he was machine-gunned to death...The Armistice was signed exactly one week later, on the eleventh of November, at five o'clock in the morning. At eleven o'clock, the fighting stopped. At twelve o'clock, the victory bells rang out."

Not About Heroes 

by Stephen Macdonald


We are returning to The Alexandra Theatre this coming February following our sellout productions 'The Hounds of the Baskervilles' (February 2019) and 'The Haunting' (February 2020).

This moving drama explores the poetic life and relationship between two to the finest Great War poets; Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon. Told by means of letters and poetry and with an original score written by Stephen Hackshaw for this production, Not About Heroes paints a vivid picture of the war and the extraordinary friendship forged between these two men.
