THE ROYALTY THEATRE: 25 The Royalty, Sunderland

It’s June 1918 and Polly Barton is starting work at a national shell-filling factory with the heroic ‘Canary Girls’, so called for the TNT that turns their skin yellow.

This warm hearted, physical theatre piece, is based on real life events and the biggest explosion this country has ever known. As these women help the boys at the ‘Front’, it’s not only the war but a disturbing family secret that threatens the new life they have forged.

“…imaginative and clever… there were some extraordinary moments between the women…”  Toni Saxton, Buxton Fringe
