In the Edwardian boomtown of Oldham, Sarah Rosebury, a local Music Hall comedienne, must find her young brother Sidney – he’s only gone and signed up to serve in the army! She must stop telling her tall tales, stop singing her silly songs, and go and rescue him. He’s just turned 15, he’s in danger, and it’s all Sarah’s fault…
Helped by her friends, she sets off to the battle frontline of 1915 France to save him, meeting other wonderful women from Oldham along the way…
Boomtown Gals by Joyce Branagh is a mix of fact and fiction:
An incredible heroic quest of a play, peppered with songs, and filled with humour – based on the real women, and their amazing true stories, discovered through local research.
Directed by award-winning Alyx Tole, Original Music from Cameron Mackintosh Bursary winner Kieran Buckeridge, with set and costume design by Olivia Du Monceau.
