My brother's trying to win the war.
We should be fighting.
I'm brilliant at fighting.
June 5, 1944, Southsea Beach.
A girl named Poppy stands on the precipice of history.
Tomorrow is the biggest day of her life: D-Day.
Along with her friend Evie, Poppy finds herself volunteering in a Southsea hospital, preparing for the arrival of casualties of the D-Day landings.
Poppy has always wanted to be a war hero, but instead finds herself being asked to do the unthinkable – provide a German prisoner of war with compassionate and tender care.
A beautifully written play about the role of women on the Home Front during the Second World War, Tender Loving Care premiered at the Square Tower Portsmouth in June 2014, in a production by The New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth.
