A comedy drama about an all-female theatre company touring Britain during the darkest days of World War Two, written by the well-known actress and premiered in the West End.

While the men are fighting Hitler and the bombs are falling on London, a ‘girls only’ theatre company sets out in a battered 1920s Rolls-Royce to bring Shakespeare to a culture-starved Britain.

Inspired by the real-life Osiris Players, whose travelling productions during the War inspired many to take up the profession – Judi Dench to name but one.
