Lilies on the Land charts the personal journey of four women who signed up for the endless hours of backbreaking farm work in order to do their best for the war effort. Based on 150 letters and interviews with original “land girls,” the characters come from different walks of life, all having volunteered to leave their families and the basic comforts of home behind to deal with the hardships of farming life and the pressures of war.
Featuring songs from the period, as well as Silent Night sung in German, Italian and English, the play provides a revealing, funny and moving portrait of some of Britain’s unsung heroes. Directed by Julie Laidlaw.
