mission

“Funny, thought-provoking and harrowing, Swan Canaries masterfully examines the camaraderie between women from a small village working together for the good of the country in WW1”

It’s July 1st 1918 and Polly Barton has just started work at National Shell-filling Factory No. 6, Chilwell. Guided by her fiancé’s mother Rose, and her old teacher Mary, it feels to Polly as if everyone in their tiny village community has been uprooted to work in the biggest munitions factory in England!

The exhausting shifts are punctuated by sports and sing-songs to keep up morale. Despite the horrors of WWI, the women discover a new sisterhood and self-reliance… until the war comes to Chilwell
