Lilies On The Land

The Lions Part
 
A revealing, funny and wonderfully moving portrait of four women who sign up to join the Women’s Land Army during World War II. The play was devised and first performed by the Lions Part.

Based on one hundred and fifty letters and interviews with original Land Girls, along with songs from the period, Lilies on the Land charts the personal journeys of four women who join the Women's Land Army – determined to work endless backbreaking hours on farms across the country in a bid to do their best for the War Effort.

But how do these women, all hailing from different walks of life, torn from their families and bereft of all basic home comforts, deal with the hardships of farming life and the pressures of war? Maybe work clothes full of mice and toilet rolls falling from the sky are just what it takes for these girls to get through…

This edition includes notes on staging and performing the play.  

Review
'wonderful... beautifully crafted... has the satisfying tang of lived experience... one leaves the theatre moved, amused and with the strong conviction that one has encountered the British character at its absolute best.'  Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph
