“Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye”
‘Lilies on the Land’ tells the story of four World War 2 Land Girls and how their lives changed forever as they learned how to work on the land and cope with the unexpected, far from home. The play shows their contribution to the war effort, the conditions they endured, and the fun they had in between, from milking cows and ploughing fields to dances with airmen and the loss of loved ones. Featuring songs of the era and anecdotes based on true testimony, ‘Lilies on the Land’ is a funny and bitter-sweet account of unforgettable experiences while the War raged in Europe.
