We’re less than two weeks away from the two public performances of Clocking On, the results of our WWI heritage project Women’s Work. Come and join us as we see the ups and downs of a single shift in a Birmingham factory and eavesdrop on the women who kept the factory lines working while men were fighting at the front.
Facing the toils of manual labour, dealing with loss and embracing new opportunities, the women are beginning to contemplate the future. When the war ends, can life go back to what it was before?
Those of you that follow W&T on social media may know about the project which has involved local women carrying out archive and interview-based research over the last few months. Their research findings now form the basis of this brand new production.
An exhibition of the project will be visiting Small Heath Library, Northfield Library, Birchfield Library and Balsall Heath Library between April-June 2015. Further details about this are available at the bottom of the page. More information about the project can be viewed here or to take a look at how the project has developed why not look at the Project Blog.
