Finally, The Muntion Worker is unique in that it presents a distinctive female yet also pro-war voice.
Written by Lady Aimée Byng Hall Scott under the name 'Alec Holmes', the play concerns a woman's desire to work herself to death in a munitions factory as part of the war effort.
With no records of any previous performance, FRED believe this will be a much delayed World Premiere!
While the work of poets and even visual artists from the period are well known, playwrights are less celebrated, something FRED's triple-bill is keen to address.
