Think of England by Anonymous Is A Woman

The War Office have employed Bette and Vera to travel the country hosting tea dances to boost morale amongst local communities and RAF personnel. But how will the locals react when they discover the women’s real purpose: to send the young men off to fight having experienced all of life’s pleasures? Join the ladies for an unforgettable dance, a rousing song, and a real-life war time scandal that threatens to destroy the women’s lives, shame the community and tear apart one already splintered RCAF crew. Can you save the night? Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity. Suitable 12+

“Excavates women’s stories with spirit and invention” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
