A gripping but charming tale charting the personal journeys of four women who sign up to become Land Girls. Read More >

Lilies On The Land is a new piece of theatre celebrating an extraordinary episode in Britain’s history; the Women’s Land Army of World War II.

A gripping but charming tale, Lilies On The Land charts the personal journeys of four women who sign up to become Land Girls, determined to work endless, backbreaking hours on farms across the country in a bid to do their best for the war effort.

But how will these women, hailing from all different walks of life, torn from their families and bereft of all basic home comforts, deal not only with the hardships of farming life and the pressures of war, but also with being outsiders in new surroundings? Maybe work clothes full of mice and toilet rolls falling from the skies are just what it takes for these girls to get through…

Based on hundreds of letters from, and interviews with, the original Land Girls, along with songs from the period, Lilies On The Land is a revealing, funny, moving portrait of some of Britain’s pluckiest, unsung heroes.
