The House Behind The Lines
Buglight Theatre invite you to peek inside The House Behind the Lines;a new play devised and scripted from our research into the hidden history of sex workers on the Western Front in World War 1.Untold numbers of women worked as prostitutes we reveal their seldom heard stories: where male dominated history has written them out, we write them in.With women heading up the creative team, this war story is all about the ladies, as it should be. Lest they be forgotten…“The House Behind the Lines is a textured, gritty and unapologetic piece of theatre depicting the previously untold stories of women on the front line. Buglight Theatre is an emerging company making bold and compassionate work for new and existing audiences – definitely ones to watch.”ALISON FORD, SQUARE CHAPEL CENTRE FOR THE ARTS
