DUNS VOLUNTEER HALL, TD11 3AF
Directed by Eloner Crawford
Performed as a radio play
Based on hundreds of letters and interviews with the original WW2 Land Girls:
When your clothes are full of mice, your boots full of slurry, or you don’t know how to stop the tractor you are driving, just laugh and get on with it.
Such was the philosophy of the ‘unsung’ heroes of Britain’s Women’s Land Army in WW2. This play tells the poignant and often hilarious personal stories of four women who signed up determined to “do their bit” for King and Country.

Greedy Francis also takes on a second job with Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waitingto be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart.
Let the mayhem begin!
