I saw the play, Not About Heroes, 23 years ago, done in a tiny theatre in the round setting. I came out of the production nearly hypnotized. I was drawn so into the story and the characters, Owen and Sassoon, that it took me many minutes, sitting outside in the theatre's patio, to come back to the real world. While reading a script is never the same as seeing a production, I was similarly drawn into the story and the characters, and read the entire script in one sitting. After doing so, I read Owen's biography, which gives a great deal of background for the drama.
Not about Heroes book. A truly sweet, heartwarming monologue between historical characters, Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen. It plays out their relationship well, even though the author does not go as far as to describe the very real "romantic" relationship they had. If you love Pat Barker's "Regeneration" series, you will definitely appreciate this play.
