A PLAY about two tea dance hosts who took patriotic duty to a whole new level, with a mission to put big smiles on the faces of RAF pilots, is set to entertain a Worcestershire audience.

The production, "Think of England" by Worcestershire-based theatre company Anonymous is a Woman Theatre Company, is based on a true story from the dark days of 1943, when RAF crews were certainly in need a morale booster.

A spokesman said: "The stimulus for the show came from a WW2 newspaper clipping which reported that two 'unnamed females' had avoided being charged with improper conduct for engaging in 'very personal' encounters with RAF pilots stationed throughout the country.

"This rousing, thought-provoking immersive play follows two young ladies as they travel across the country hosting tea dances for RAF fighter pilots during the Second World War. Their real purpose; to send the men off to fight having experienced all of life’s pleasures."

The spokesman added: "Although the subject was taboo at the time, the show is performed in the spirit of 'jolly good fun', weaving gentle innuendo with moments of painfully funny British embarrassment as the characters coyly dance around the topic of 'morale boosting'."

The show premieres at The Fleece Inn, Bretforton on Wednesday November 9 from 8pm.
