CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
My Dearest Girls
Francesca 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.
