We Happy Few

By Imogen Stubbs

A comedy drama about an all-female theatre company touring Britain during the darkest days of World War Two, written by the well-known actress and premiered in the West End.

While the men are fighting Hitler and the bombs are falling on London, a 'girls only' theatre company sets out in a battered 1920s Rolls-Royce to bring Shakespeare to a culture-starved Britain.

Inspired by the real-life Osiris Players, whose travelling productions during the War inspired many to take up the profession - Judi Dench to name but one.

Press Quotes

'There isn't a sweeter, warmer, more likeable play in London'

The Times

'By far and away the funniest and saddest backstage play for half a century... If there has been a better or more achingly theatrical new play in the West End in the past year then I've not seen or heard of it'

Daily Express

'Very funny. A fascinating slice of social history'
