About the Show/Event
Find the best Unicorns, Almost play tickets at Bristol Old Vic, Bristol. Unicorns, Almost tells the life story of Keith Douglas from his early childhood to his fighting in the Western desert as a tank commander; his accelerated education as a poet to his early death three days after the D-Day landings in Normandy at age 24. Marking the outbreak of WWII for its 80th anniversary, this is the story of one man's Faustian pact with a war which would both gift his penetrating poetic voice, and then take it away. Weston Studio
