Lilies On The Land - May 2015
Cast List (in order of appearance)
This production was our second entry into the Kent Drama Association's 2015 Full-Length Play Festival and received the following awards:
A moving portrait of four women who sign up to join the Women's Land Army during World War II.
Based on 150 letters and interviews with original Land Girls, along with
songs from the period, Lilies on the Land charts the personal journeys of four women who join
the Women's Land Army – determined to work endless backbreaking hours on farms across the
country in a bid to do their best for the War Effort.
But how do these women, all hailing from different walks of life, torn from their families and bereft of all basic home comforts, deal with the hardships of farming life and the pressures of war? Maybe work clothes full of mice and toilet rolls falling from the sky are just what it takes for these girls to get through.
