Francesca Millican-Slater creates a brand new piece based on the real letters sent between a group of six Shropshire women between 1917-1920. My Dearest Girls – Helen's story is a 25 minute performance by Francessca Millican-Slater commissioned by Shropshire Archives. Against a background of war the women tell each other stories of their everyday life; as farmers, office workers, factory hands, nurses and teachers.
Helen's story tells the tale of one woman, a farmer's daughter in Much Wenlock. Through Helen's own words we hear about women working on the land, the impact of the war on family and farm and her own wait for news from The Front.
Lancashire County Council's Cultural Services in partnership with Spot On Lancashire, are delighted to bring this story to the Harris Library & Museum on Friday 10th October and Burnley Library on Saturday 11th October. Shows at 11am, 1pm, 3pm on both days.
