Flying Bridge Theatre Company and Seabright Productions in association with Pleasance and Newport Live present

By Stephen MacDonald | Directed by Tim Baker

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, and embarks on a world tour commemorating the centenary of both the meeting depicted in the play, and of the Armistice.

‘An engaging delineation between two entirely different personalities united by a common vocation and some truly hellish experiences.’ The Guardian

‘Recreates the Great War as tangibly as if the theatre had filled with the smoke and stench of the battlefield. Compelling and superbly performed.’ British Theatre Guide
