    It's June 1918, and Polly Barton is starting work at a National Shell-filling Factory. Known as Canary Girls, because the TNT turns their skin yellow, the women workers know that they're helping their Boys at the Front. Life is hard but eventful, until the revelation of a family-secret and the War itself threaten the new life the women have forged. Winner of the Best Theatre Production Award at Buxton Fringe, this production uses physical theatre and the songs of the era to take the audience back to 1918, and the biggest explosion this country has ever known. This hugely warm hearted, moving show tells a story not often told. The story of women risking their lives for the good of the country. “...imaginative and clever... there were some extraordinary moments between the women, demonstrating that life in the munitions factory was more than patriotism and yellow hands; there is sisterly love, conflict and family secrets.” Toni Saxton, Buxton Fringe If interested in booking the show contact hannah@arlettytheatre.co.uk, see more on the website www.arlettytheatre.co.uk

    • H.T.W.E. [civil war bed] w/sound EFX(v101413)


      from Tamar Stone / Added

      NOTE: The sound on this video comes in at 12 seconds from the beginning. After 1:30 it becomes very soft then becomes louder at the 5:50 mark. This is part of an ongoing series of Bed Projects of women's histories and her-stories. To read more about these bed projects, please see my website: tamarstone.com/Bed_Work.html This specific bed began with my interest in Florence Nightingale and her hospital reform work during the Crimean War. What she accomplished would change the way nurses and the field of nursing would be considered from that point onward (both on the battle field and at home). Many women were inspired by her work and joined the war as volunteers – following their husbands and brothers into the battle fields. Others disguised themselves as men in order to partake in the action at the front lines. These stories include those told from the more well-known Louisa May Alcott (whose literary beginnings were formed with her hospital experiences written in her 1863 book, “Hospital Sketches” ), to Sara Emma Edmonds, also known as the soldier “Frank” during the war, among others. It is their bed oriented stories and experiences, that fill this folding army cot. The bag that that holds the bed and bedding is based on a design from early World War tent bags. The pie-chart design stitched on it is based on the coxcomb charts Florence Nightingale devised to explain health reforms needed, based on death statistics of the British army troops on the fields, during the Crimean War.
