Five Women. One War. One Purpose.
Innovative theatre company Anonymous is a Woman present F.A.N.Y., the story of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry at the Old Joint Stock theatre this week. This play records the incredible women who drove ambulances from the front line of the bloody battlefield to the nearby hospitals. The play is based on real accounts accessed from the F.A.N.Y records and the Imperial War Museum, and takes inspiration from novels by Robert Radcliffe.
So little has ever been said about the women ambulance drivers but with the centenary of World War One, now is the perfect time for their story to finally to be heard. Since performing an extract at last year’s Women’s History Network Conference in Worcester to delegates from across the globe, the company are bringing their show to premier in the West Midlands as part of the Imperial War Museums Centenary Partnership.
