Inspired by a true story, We Happy Few follows the adventures of a small group of women.
They come together to form a 'girls only' theatre company to take-the plays of Shakespeare around a culture-starved Britain during World War II.
While the men are fighting Hitler and the bombs are blitzing London, they embark on a crazy adventure, crammed into their battered 1920s Rolls-Royce. Separately and together they are forced to discover what life is like without men, and, eventually, how they must survive when they have only each other.
"An amusing, often touching, ensemble piece"
