A specially written play by John Giller set in World War II to help engage and enhance the learning and understanding for pupils within the KS2 Creative Curriculum for History and Literacy. Lasting 40 minutes (approx) this is a story of both worry and hope, but ultimately rejoicing.


This show centres around the main character Kathy.  A young girl in her twenties, working in Mrs Jenkin’s Café, in the middle on London during the Second World War.  Our story is set during one night of bombing, when Katherine is about to shut up shop for the night and head for the Anderson shelter, however a gentleman appears at the door of the café and after that evening things will never be the same again.



Absolutely brilliant performance, very professionally delivered. The children thoroughly engaged with the story from start to finish
