We’re very excited to be in the first phase of devising our new WWI heritage project ‘Women’s Work’.

During February & March 2015, W&T artists are working with community participants to research the history of the BSA factory and the experiences of WWI female factory workers, before developing research findings into a theatre performance and exhibition.

So far we’ve held two research sessions, and presented a fascinating talk from Chris Upton on the history of the Birmingham Small Arms Factory in Small Heath.

We are keen to stress however that this exciting project is still evolving and it is not too late to get involved…..

Do you have inside knowledge of the BSA Factory in Small Heath? Or maybe you’re a budding performer or an amateur historian?

If so we’d love to hear from you. To get in touch just email rachelsnape@womenandtheatre.co.uk
