Whats On in Cardiff? The wonderful Everyman Company brings a new musical to Chapter in May.
A musical written by Howard Goodall, Richard Curtis and John Retallack.
Girlfriends is set during the second world war at the height of the Blitz and follows recruits of the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). It is 1941 and the chances are that only 1 in 5 bomber command aircrew will complete 30 tours of duty.
This inspiring musical shines a light on the pressures, expectations and dilemmas women faced supporting the war effort and how they rose to the challenge with courage, stoicism, camaraderie and inner strength. All from different backgrounds with different temperaments, they become friends in this unusual melting pot.
