About the event

Andrew Motion at the 23rd Aldeburgh Poetry Festival. Play: Incoming by Andrew Motion, director Steven Atkinson. Two months ago, Steph’s soldier husband Danny was killed in Afghanistan. One winter morning, just before dawn, he re-appears at home. I went out there to stop people fighting, now I’m part of the reason it goes on. Marvellous.
‘…hauntingly expresses the confusion and misery we imagine.’
(The Times) ‘Motion has a gift for drama.’ (The Guardian). Tickets £10. Call 01728 687110 or visit
