This lovely play is an affectionate account of a group of female actors setting out in a battered 1920s Rolls-Royce to bring Shakespeare to a culture-starved Britain during the war. There are moments of sadness and a great deal of laughter.
It has a cast of 8 female and 2 male, of varying ages, and all the roles are of more or less equal size and on stage most of the time so it's a beautifully balanced ensemble piece of theatre.
