FLYING BRIDGE THEATRE COMPANY AND SEABRIGHT PRODUCTIONS PRESENT THE THEATR CLWYD PRODUCTION OF
NOT ABOUT HEROES
by Stephen Macdonald
Directed by Tim Baker
 
The friendship between World War One poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon is celebrated in Stephen Macdonald’s award-winning play.
 
Overshadowed by an appalling war, the poets' bonds were forged through poetry whilst in hospital in 1917 - Sassoon, a decorated war hero receiving pychiatric treatment for protesting against the conflict and Owen, a victim of shell shock and accused of cowardice. Weaving together their letters and poetry, Not About Heroes is a potent exploration of courage and humanity.
 
Wales Theatre Award 2017 Best Actor - Daniel Llewelyn Williams as Siegfried Sassoon.
 
‘Compelling and superbly performed’

by Richard Bean
Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni
With songs by Grant Olding
Directed by Richard Tunley
 
Black RAT Productions present this deliriously funny original version of Richard Bean’s fast-paced, riotous farce.
 
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from the dad of his fiancée… But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers! 
 
Holed up at The Cricketers Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. 
 
Simple.
 
This brand new production of Richard Bean’s West End and Broadway smash-hit features a rib-tickling mix of songs, slapstick and brilliant one-liners.
 
This is a theatrical experience not to be missed!
 
A Black RAT Productions, Blackwood Miners' Institute and RCT Theatres co-production supported by Arts Council Wales
