Scotland, 1945: Seven young women, all members of the Women's Royal Naval Service (aka Wrens), are packed together in a tiny barrack on the eve of V-E Day. All from different backgrounds, regions, religions and classes, the women must confront complex emotions and decisions as they face the prospect of peace, which also means an end to their newfound wartime independence in Wrens. Written by Anne McGravie, this semi-autobiographical drama is an examination of loyalty, morality and duty during World War II. Learn More
In 1917 three of the twentieth century’s most crucial revolutionaries – author James Joyce, Tristan Tzara, the founder of the Dada art movement, and political revolutionary Lenin – were all living in Zurich. Stoppard spins this historical coincidence into a hysterically madcap speculative portrait of what their meeting might have engendered in this knockout comedy, tumbling from Stoppard’s comic-imagination-on-steroid intellect.
