Event Description

Lilies on the Land is a truly remarkable and sparkling piece of theatre which celebrates an extraordinary episode in Britain's history - the Women's Land Army of World War II.

These gripping but charming tales, chart the personal journeys of four women who sign up to become Land Girls, determined to work endless, backbreaking hours on farms across the country in a bid to do their best for the war effort.

But how will these women, hailing from all different walks of life, torn from their families and bereft of all basic home comforts, deal not only with the hardships of farming life and the pressures of war, but also with being outsiders in new surroundings? Maybe work clothes full of mice and toilet rolls falling from the skies are just what it takes for these girls to get along…

Based on hundreds of letters from and interviews with the original Land Girls, Lilies on the Land is a revealing, funny, wonderfully moving and utterly captivating portrait of some of Britain's pluckiest, unsung heroes. Simply unmissable, this is theatre at its most memorable.
