We would just love as many people as possible to see this show which is about how women rebuilt their lives after the Great War.

This show is part of our Heritage Lottery funded project 'Then and Now: Rebuilding lives after the Great War.' It is based on discovered letters which were written during the First World War between Lucy and five men, including her fiancé and brother who both died in the last three months of the war.

"In 1918, the letters stopped and Lucy had to face life having lost her fiancé and brother in the last few weeks of the war. This true story suggests the effects of this trauma on her life after WWI and how these might have been passed down through the generations. Using conversations from direct descendants of Lucy and stories gathered from the families of other women who suffered in a similar way, this play, with original music, explores the thousands of silent victims who rebuilt family and community life when the men did or did not return"

The play will then move to the Edinburgh Festival to be performed between 3 - 11 August. Find tickets here.
