Lucy Kaufman’s latest play keeps the home fires burning

We have showcased Lucy Kaufman’s work at She Writes, so we are delighted to tell you about her full-length play, on at Brockley Jack Studio Theatre. 

HOME FIRES explores the impact of World War One through the eyes of women – mothers, wives, sweethearts, and munitions workers – using actual letters, diaries, poetry and song.

Featuring an all-female cast, this musical play brings to the stage the real-life stories and experiences of Sydenham’s gas workers and their families. The result is a touching, sometimes comic, and engaging story which embraces universal themes of comradeship, love and loss.

HOME FIRES was developed as part of the Heritage Lottery and Arts Council England-funded musical theatre project TILL THE BOYS COME HOME, and premiered at the prestigious Sydenham Arts Festival 2014 in July.

Tues 28 April to 2 May  2015 at 7.45pm Book here

Tickets: £14, £11 concs. Suitable for 10+
