About the Show/Event
Information for Not About Heroes at Pleasance, Edinburgh (Play). Set in a Scottish war hospital during WW1, this is the story of the meeting and developing friendship of the celebrated writer, Siegfried Sassoon and the then unknown Wilfred Owen who was suffering from shell shock. It was this profoundly creative and liberating friendship that finally unlocked Owen's poetic genius to express the horror and pity of war, a war which claimed his life exactly one week before the armistice. Venue 23 - King Dome, Pleasance Dome. Edinburgh Fringe Festival
