Anonymous is a Woman with 'Think of England'

Suitable for 12
Adults £9.00, U18 £6.00, Family £25.

Think of England. The war office have employed Bette and Vera to travel the country hosting tea dances to boost morale in rural communities and RAF personnel. But how will the locals react when they discover the women's real purpose : to send the young men off to fight having experienced all of life's pleasures? Join the ladies at your local hall for an unforgettable dance, a rousing song and real-life, wartime scandal that threatens to destroy the women's lives, shame your community and tear apart one already splintered RAF crew. Can you save the night?

The show was commissioned by Live and Local Touring in the midlands, and developed specifically for rural village halls. Suitable 12 with adults, sexual references and mild swearing
