An evening to make us count our blessings

26

Another First World War drama? There has been no shortage in this centenary year yet the power of that dreadful conflict is such that it never seems to pall.

Here we have a Nicholas Wright stage adaptation of Pat Barker’s story about an Edinburgh psychiatric hospital where poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen met.

Did the two men fall in love?

Shell-shock victim Owen becomes ‘soft’ on the more cold, self-absorbed Sassoon, who had been showing signs of political unrest and may have been lucky not to be court-martialled.

The play opens with Sassoon (Tim Delap, impeccably handsome, just a hint of the feline) having his place at the hospital fixed by his friend Robert Graves (Christopher Brandon with a bewitching cast of eye). Is Sassoon simply dodging trouble? Or is he truly in need of psychiatric care at the hands of Stephen Boxer’s humane Capt Rivers?
