We Happy Few

18th, 19th, 20th and 21st July 2018
7.30 PM at the Lion Theatre
The Company is proud to present We Happy Few, by Imogen Stubbs, directed by Penny Holland.

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.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with NICK HERN BOOKS
