“My grandfather was one of the crew members. I just wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work and for keeping the history alive.” Laurie Arthurs (The Tank, 2017)
“This play made us think, made us emotional and ultimately entertained us. A standing ovation and a real pleasure!” (Rishi and Asch, Theatre Reviewers: Home, 2018)
Seen through the eyes of Lottie, a nurse close to the frontline during WW1. We capture some of the real-life women whom served as nurses and ambulance drivers over the course of one eventful night.
Following on from the past two successful productions of “The Tank” and “Home for a Lost Soldier,” this is a new community project exploring what life was like during the First World War through performance techniques and inspiring people to learn about the past. After a series of workshops, research and visits, we then worked as a team to devise this one-act play to bring to life and to pay respect to the many women (and men) who worked in the hospitals caring for the injured soldiers in a heart-warming story. Supported in partnership with the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Gateways to the First World War.
