COMING OF AGE by Tony Woollams
A journey of a young woman who grows up during Wartime.
This is a drama of war. A world war that changed the course of history. A class war resulting in the death of old attitudes and standards. A war that emancipated a country too long tied to the apron-strings of a colonial ‘Mother England’. A war for women for their right to choose their destiny. A war that divided the country, though united it in the struggle in the search for freedom. Coming of Age
is an unconventional love story. We follow Jenny, the working-class daughter of a labour man from humble beginnings, and Peter, the progeny of new money as they fall in love. Together they come of age against the backdrop of WWII, facing challenges of rationing, conscription and mechanised warfare.
This historical drama watches two star-crossed lover’s fight to be together against adversity of their class and circumstances. Written by LPAE’s own Tony Woollams, it asks us to consider how far we have come, and what have we to learn from the repetition of history.
