This two-hander play takes us through the history of the last 100 years in a shop in a Lancashire town.
The show mixes poetry, storytelling and music, to tell the story of a local shop spanning 100 years from 1919 to present day. Telling of the women that have made up the shop’s history, whilst also showing how the lives of women have changed over the last century.
Miss Nobodies, was inspired by outreach done online and in the community of Great Harwood alongside research into local history and prominent figures of Lancashire. One such person is Ethel Carnie Holdsworth. A writer that worked in the mills in the early part of the last century. She is sited as the first working class, female novelist in the UK and parts of her poetry are used throughout the play to punctuate the story. The themes of the show cover social responsibility, civic duty and local pride, whilst touching on female solidarity, life choices and loneliness.
