NOT ABOUT HEROES by Stephen MacDonald
November 15-17, all at 7 pm at Off-Leash Area Art Box (4200 East 54th Street, Minneapolis)
Hero Now Theatre presents a play chosen to mark the 100th anniversary of the World War I armistice, about two actual WWI British officers who met by chance but developed a deep relationship as they discussed duty, friendship, and the art they both practiced: the writing of poetry.
Wilfred Owen, a shell-shocked soldier recovering in an Edinburgh hospital, meets the poet he idolizes, Siegfried Sassoon. Both have witnessed the horrors of trench warfare, and both write poems about it. As they discuss how they can tell the truth about war, a channel of communication opens, allowing them to talk honestly: Is the war justified? Should they return to the battle lines? At first intended to be therapeutic, their writing resulted in some of the finest English-language war poems ever written. But one thing they struggle to confront honestly is their strong feelings about each other.
