Keep The Home Fires Burning

“There's a silver lining
Through the dark clouds shining,
Turn the dark cloud inside out
'Til the boys come home.”

The history books are full of the brave exploits of the nearly six million British soldiers who served in World War II. But what of the women they left behind?

These wives, mothers, sisters and daughters are so often omitted from the annuls of war, but their contribution to the war effort, taking on the jobs the men had to leave, in factories, on the land, driving fire engines and ambulances and keeping the country on its feet, must never be forgotten.

Apollo Theatre Company presents this brand new show which uses real accounts of women who lived through the war, punctuated beautifully with some of the most enduring music and songs from the period.

Written and performed by Amy Hamlen
