We Happy Few

By Imogen Stubbs
Directed by Christopher Hunter

This comedy drama about an all-female theatre company touring Britain during the darkest days of World War Two is based on the true wartime history of the Osiris Players.

While the men are fighting Hitler and the bombs are falling on London, a 'girls only' theatre company of hopelessly mismatched individuals from different social backgrounds sets out to bring Shakespeare to a culture-starved Britain.

Together and separately they are forced to discover what life is like without men, and how they must survive when they have only each other.

An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
