Wilfred and Susan - a joint Adult/Youth Theatre production in the Salisbury Studio
06/11/18 - 08/11/18
An original drama based on Wilfred Owen's tragically brief life to mark the centenary of his death in World War One on 4 November, 1918. A recreation of his life through a selection of his five hundred-plus letters that he wrote to his mother, Susan Owen. Unfortunately Susan's letters to her son were destroyed but Jan Bengree, through extensive research, has created Susan's imagined responses, giving us an insight into both the character of Wilfred's mother and their intense mother-son relationship.
Recreated and directed by Jenny and Paul Shryane
