4* Review for Not About Heroes in Liverpool

4* Review for Not About Heroes in Liverpool

Not About Heroes by Stephen MacDonald, directed by Caroline Clegg, composed by Ailís Ní Ríain – 4* review in the Liverpool Echo. Read here.

“An equally spare score from Ailis Ni Riain underpins the text with the melancholy strains of a lone cello. This is a superbly crafted production of a beautiful piece of writing that is both a moving tribute to Sassoon and Owen and a fitting memorial to all those whose lives have been lost or permanently altered by conflict. Highly recommended.” – Liverpool50
