A NEW musical play based on the true story of Dorothy Lawrence, packed with songs from the First World War, is to be presented by Chester-based trio The Harmonettes.
Dorothy’s War begins on a bright clear day in 1919. Two women arrive at a pre-arranged spot for a mysterious assignation with a third woman they have never met. Who is she? What do they want with her? And who is the man that connects them?
This new show is told through the songs of the period - ranging from much-loved favourites to forgotten gems – all sung live in close-harmony.
Dorothy’s War stars The Harmonettes, fresh from the success of their previous hit The Harmonettes Go Into Orbit, also written by BAFTA-nominated writer-director Janys Chambers.
The Harmonettes have been a company for more than four years. Their debut show The Harmonettes go into Orbit has toured seven times including a successful run at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The performance can be seen on Thursday, March 19 at 7.30pm at Whitby Hall Theatre, Whitby Park, Stanney Lane, Ellesmere Port. Tickets £8, concessions £5. Visit www.actiontransporttheatre.org or call 0151 357 2120.
