Some girls just aren’t cut out for farming…

It’s 1942, and there are some new arrivals in the village. They’re turning heads and breaking hearts as the fine girls of the Women’s Land Army take to the hills. Buff is a city girl dreaming of being ‘just like Vera Lynn’, while Biddy is a country girl who is ‘now’t but a hopeless romantic’. Join them on a journey of blisters, back-ache and banter as they learn all there is to know about working on the land.

This brand new comedy two-hander celebrates the highs and lows of the wonderful women who helped keep Britain fed during World War II, set against a backdrop of glorious music of the age, as well as new tunes by songwriter Jez Lowe.

“This is a production brimming with creativity and talent. If you get the chance to go and see this do, as it is a joyful and uplifting experience” – York Press.
