  • Overview
    Girlfriends was originally commissioned and premiered by the Oldham Coliseum in May 1986.

    Set in England in 1941 during World War 2, Girlfriends focuses on the lives of two best friends. An emotionally compelling musical that celebrates the members of the Womens Auxiliary Air Force as they struggle to survive and fight to win.

    As an evocative reminder of our world situation today, Girlfriends asks why we go to war for both the good and bad and honours those who have risked their lives to preserve freedom for all. The bravery, camaraderie, solidarity and humor of this team of women from every class, region and religion produce a story that is both touching and compelling.

    Caught in a love triangle with a young bomber pilot, who like all airmen had only a 20% chance of surviving a 30 flight tour of duty, the girlfriends know that any night could be his last...
