A concert and narration of poet Siegfried Sassoon’s life adapted by Maureen Lyle from autobiographical writings and poems.
Following Sassoon’s life from pre-war country gentleman to wartime hero the narration will be accompanied by music, English song and popular ballads. This remarkable journey includes many twists of fate and personal challenges leading to Sassoon’s unique poetry depicting life in the trenches and his ultimate discharge as an army officer a hundred years ago in 1919.
