The Rutlanders Return
Commissioned by Arts for Rutland this play followed the lives of four Rutland women and their families from the end of the First World War through until the mid-twenties; a period during which old social hierarchies began to crumble and the promises of a new world were confronted with the realities of post war life.
With a cast of around thirty, live music and original songs, the play toured over five days to a number of Rutland villages to an audience of around six hundred people. Every performance was packed, we could easily have sold out many more shows, and the responses from the audience were wonderful.
We are now working with Arts for Rutland on creating an education pack based on the work and are looking at the possibility of creating a radio play. This was one of the strongest pieces of drama that we’ve made for many years.
