Anthem for Doomed Youth
Based on the poems of Wilfred Owen,
Devised and directed by David Fletcher
An anthology of the poems of the incomparable Wilfred Owen, plus some other writing from the period. The poems have been arranged to tell the story of the war from the enthusiastic send-off, through battles to the ‘drawing down of blinds’. These brilliant poems will be delivered in dramatic settings, some spoken by soldiers and some by the women who observe them, with songs and hymns from the war.
