THE WORLD AT HER FEET
Lincoln Drill Hall 11 – 17 November 2018
Written by local playwright, Steven Gillard
As the nation marks exactly 100 years since the end of The Great War, the Lincoln Mystery Plays Company
presents the extraordinary story of Women’s football a century ago through the eyes of one of the most enduring teams of the time, the Lincoln Ladies.
Throughout the war women across he country had successfully undertaken a huge range of traditional male roles, but as the euphoria of the end of the war began to subside, the men who had returned from the war expected life to return to normal too…
Using plenty of humour and a real sense of spectacle, The World at Her Feet will tell the remarkable story of the Lincoln Ladies and the extraordinary challenges faced by Women and Men in the aftermath of the greatest conflict the world had ever seen.
An uplifting story of success, struggle and sacrifice.
