My Dearest Girls

The Letter's Book

Crewe Lyceum Theatre

Saturday 10 November, 7:30 PM

My Dearest Girls
SHOW INFORMATION

Francesca Millican-Slater creates a brand new piece based on the real letters sent between a group of six Shropshire women between 1917-1920.

Against a background of war the women tell each other stories of their everyday life; as farmers, office workers, factory hands, nurses and teachers. There is gossip and hint of scandal, reprimands and reprisals, tales of dancing for royalty, fiancé’s on the frontline and how to feed 100 chickens while on rations.

By combining character, music hall influenced song & lyrical story telling Francesca invites the audience to meet, hear and imagine themselves within the lives and friendships of these women.

‘The more Francesca Millican-Slater revealed the contents of her century-old copy book of secrets; so the smaller Wem Town Hall seemed to become…until all 70 of us were sitting comfortably in the palm of her hand; entirely enthralled.’ Chris Eldon-Lee, Vitural Shropshire
‘Thought-provoking, funny, richly-textured, closely-observed and very satisfying’ Tim Cara, Dereham Times
Produced by Pippa Frith, in partnership with Arts Alive and Shropshire Archives, supported by Pentabus, Arts Council England and HLF
