Lilies on the Land

By The Lions Part
Directed by Lou Wallace
12th – 20th February 2016

Land girls, Churchill and the white cliffs of Dover

Magnificent and very moving – a lovely mixture of poignancy and humour

Joan Clifford (WLA 0101337)

A unique theatrical tribute to those plucky women of the ‘forgotten army’, who toiled the land, leaving behind families and bereft of their home comforts. The text is based on a variety of sources including hundreds of letters and interviews with real land girls, and is also layered with period songs and extracts from one or two rather famous speeches. The result is a theatrical collage moving back and forth through time, where we share the reality of life on the land and recognise the hardships and humour that often went side by side. We see the personal journeys of four women, from different walks of life and parts of the country, as they slowly get to grips with their new lives. Be prepared for a lot of laughs and perhaps a few tears as well.
