On the final day of September 2013 I was one of seven writers selected to take part in September at Bolton Octagon, which the theatre described as ‘One of the most exciting events at the Octagon to date where writers, actors and musicians come together to create new works in one day [with] the entire event… dedicated to making urgent, original and gripping pieces of new work using spoken word, singing, new music and physical theatre’ around themes of Love, Evolution and Power. My particular inspiration was the poem ‘Reconciliation’ written by Siegfried Sassoon who was born and died in September.
