An original comedy drama by Kate Bramley, music by Radio Academy award winner Jez Lowe. A vibrant play that follows the lives of three women from the same rural household, through the long years of The Great War, left behind to cope as their men-folk march off to Flanders. Each one faces up to the challenges in her own way, with resilience, humour, a sense of duty and whatever vestiges of hope she and muster, as the years pass by and they wait anxiously for news. They cannot know that their village will end the war as one of a very few similar communities for which rate has reserved a special place in history.
