Directly derived from grass-roots work with homeless people and ex-service personnel Poets of Loss tells the story of a man finding solace in his dying moments. A soldier returned from war, he cannot reconcile himself to civilian life, or forget the atrocities he has been party to. This genuinely moving opera exposes the tragedy behind the ex-service men and women who make up a quarter of Britain’s homeless community, and tells the stories of the other people whose lives and homes have been destroyed through debt and economic circumstance.
