Bullets and Daffodils The Wilfred Owen Story
Saturday 01 November 7:30pm
Ahead of the WWI Centenary, join us for this passionate tribute to the great war poet, Wilfred Owen.
Through, song, spoken word and physical expression, Bullets and Daffodils tells the story of Wilfred Owen's life from his childhood in Birkenhead to his death in the trenches, with many of his greatest poems set to music.
The script contains contributions from Doctor Who writer David Quantick, whilst the score includes music donated gratis from Pink Floyd's David Gilmour.
Wilfred Owen is second only to Shakespeare as the most studied poet of all time on the curriculum.
“Thought-provoking, moving and different” British Theatre Guide
“Bullets and Daffodils is and has a good contemporary way of introducing people of all ages, but particularly the younger, to Wilfred's poetry” Peter Owen, Wilfred's Nephew
