2014 marks the centenary of the beginning of the First World War and audiences can expect to see plenty that will commemorate this occasion throughout the year. One of these comes to the Southwark Playhouse in January and takes the form of What The Women Did, focusing on the women that were left behind as the men went off to fight.
The First World War is remembered for the terrible conditions that soldiers faced in the trenches, but there was more to this. Back at home women were tasked with taking over the men’s work whilst also managing their home lives at a time when the country was under great threat.
What The Women Did is a series of plays entitled Luck Of War by Gwen John, Handmaidens Of Death by Herbert Tremaine and The Old Lady Shows Her Medals by J M Barrie.
The production is directed by Tricia Thorns and she has worked as both an actor and director over the years. Her credits include London Wall at the St James’s Theatre, My Real War 1914-? at the Trafalgar Studios and Black ‘Ell at the Soho Theatre, among others. She also directed What The Women Did when it first appeared at the Southwark Playhouse back in 2004. He career as an actor has also landed her with great success, allowing her to appear on the stage and screen.
