Musical ()

Music & Lyrics : Howard Goodall Book: Howard Goodall & John Rettalack Director: John Rettalack Choreographer: Stuart Hopps

Résumé: Set in World War II this is the story of a group of WAAFs (The Women’s Auxiliary Air Force), and the role women played in the Battle of Britain. It deals with class distinctions, misfits, understanding officers, shy recruits, man-hungry veterans and a general air of knuckling under and winning through against the odds. The major dramatic point is the theft of a parachute from which to make knickers and the punishment meted out to an awkward Glasgow girl for this offence. The romance of the show is confined to a very low-key affair between a pilot, brother of one of the WAAFs, to a girl of the wrong class.

Commentaires : Originally produced at the Oldham Coliseum, this was considerably re-written for the West End, and was a virtually sung-through piece, with very little linking dialogue. The music was praised, but the lyrics and book came in for a lot of criticism. All in all, it was considered an honourable failure.
