Unicorns, Almost is a one-man play by Owen Sheers about the life and work of WWII poet Keith Douglas. Let an immersive set and a 'wonderful performance' (Margaret Atwood) by Dan Krikler take you into Douglas' world, from childhood through four engagements to fighting in the Western desert and his death three days after D-Day aged 24. This is the story of the accelerated development of a poet and his desperate race to see his words in print before time runs out. Directed by John Retallack. Produced by The Story of Books.
