An immersive audio experience and installation based on the play by Owen Sheers about the life and work of WW2 poet Keith Douglas.

Unicorns, Almost tells the life story of Keith Douglas from his early childhood, to his fighting in the Western desert as a tank commander, accelerated education as a poet to his early death three days after the D-Day landings in Normandy at age 24. It is the story of one man’s Faustian pact with a war, which would both gift his unique and penetrating poetic voice, but then also take it away.

The live performance version of Unicorns, Almost runs from 13th – 25th August, more information can be found here.
