THE reminiscences and personal stories of a number of Land Army Girls is the basis for a new comedy from Badapple Theatre.

Celebrating the highs and lows of the wonderful women who helped keep Britain fed during the Second World War, the show is set against a backdrop of glorious music of the age, as well as new tunes by songwriter Jez Lowe.

It’s 1942, and there are some new arrivals in the village.

They’re turning heads and breaking hearts as the fine girls of the Women’s Land Army take to the hills.

Buff is a city girl dreaming of being “just like Vera Lynn”, while Biddy is a country girl who is “now’t but a hopeless romantic”.

Join them on a journey of blisters, backache and banter as they learn all there is to know about working on the land.

Back to the Land Girls will be performed at Ludford Village Hall this Friday, March 25, at 7.30pm.

Doors open at 7pm, with tickets £7 on the door, or £6 in advance from 01507 313335.
