Two's Company's What the Women Did, a wartime drama which was a sell-out success when it was first shown at the Southwark Playhouse in 2004, is being remounted for the 1914 Centenary. The "neglected great war threesome... offers a fascinating portrait of the isolation felt by women", wrote Michael Billington in The Guardian, reviewing the original production ten years ago. The three plays - 'Luck of War' by Gwen John, 'Handmaidens of Death' by Herbert Tremaine and 'The Old Lady Shows Her Medals' by Peter Pan creator J M Barrie - each examine women's roles during the First World War.
