A one-man show exploring Wilfred Owen’s experience of war through his poetry and the poetry of his contemporaries. Includes Dulce Et Decorum Est, Exposure, The Hero, In Flanders Fields, Who’s For the Game? and others. A British officer travels from Allied HQ to the Western Front, one week before the Armistice, and discovers the pocket book of a young lieutenant killed that day. So we journey through the poetry of Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and others. Written and directed by award winning writer, Justin Butcher and performed by experienced and accomplished professional actor, Rupert Mason.


The show lasts 50 minutes.
