Unicorns, Almost is a one-man show portraying the short life of World War II poet Keith Douglas

It runs from his childhood through his four engagements to his fighting in the Western desert, his accelerated education as a poet and his early death three days after the Normandy D-Day landings at the age of twenty-four

It is the story of his Faustian pact with a war that would nurture his unique poetic voice before taking it away

It is also the story of his desperate race to see his poems in print

Widely recognised as the finest poet of World War Two, Keith Douglas was championed by Ted Hughes who wrote the introduction to his Collected Poems
