Saturday 10th November 2012 : BBC RADIO 4 EXTRA
"This play for Armistice Day is an atmospheric and moving account of the last hours of Wilfred Owen's life.
The sense of despair mingled with cameraderie in the trenches is brilliantly conveyed, particularly by
Alex Jennings as The Captain and Paul Rhys as Owen."
"This clever, horrifying play by Peter Wolf is inspired by Wilfrid Owen's famous poem Strange Meeting.
Superb direction by Cherry Cookson."
"A lyrical but complex play - with wonderful music by Norbert Zehm."
TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT
"...the piece has what are already turning into Wolf's trademarks - a scorching intensity,
a lacerating and uncompromising vision of hell. No feelgood dramatist, he coerces listeners
to engage, and lassoes our imagination."
