CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.


My Dearest Girls archiveFrancesca Millican-Slater creates a piece based on the real letters sent between a group of six Shropshire women between 1917-1920. Against a background of war the women tell each other stories of their everyday life; as farmers, office workers, factory hands, nurses and teachers. There is gossip and a hint of scandal, reprimands and reprisals, tales of dancing for royalty, fianc?s on the frontline and how to feed 100 chickens while on rations. By combining character, music hall-influenced song and lyrical storytelling, Francesca invites the audience to meet, hear and imagine themselves within the lives and friendships of these women.
