WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE WAR, MUM? was researched, written and performed to mark the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. It was part of major celebrations in the UK and played to audiences of all ages across the country. It had an important, but rarely heard, story to tell about the crucial role of women in the forces, on the land, in production and in maintaining the home front. The music of the war years was a crucial part of the play, arranged by Paula Gardiner and performed live by the highly skilled performers, evoking powerful memories and associations. On its second tour in 1993, the show travelled across the UK and western Europe, and each performance was followed by discussion with the audience and a further sharing of memories.
