Busy Lizzies Theatre Company presents

Idle Women

Thursday 30th May


Idle Women is a new, original musical created and performed by local actors and musicians. This tapestry of music and story heralds those who worked on the Inland Waterways in World War II. It tells the story of four intrepid women, weaving together their challenges and triumphs, with songs of the characters’ hopes, secrets, and desires.

The Busy Lizzies team, brought together by Phil Jones of Long Way Home Productions, was inspired by the extraordinary role these women played in exceptional circumstances. This new, heart-warming musical is based in truth, and explores themes that still resonate today: friendship, purpose, gender, sexuality, and identity. It promises to leave you feeling as “warm as buttered toast” (Lisa Wolfe, Fringe Review 2023).
