My brother's trying to win the war. He's fighting. We should be fighting. I'm brilliant at fighting. June 5, 1944, Southsea Beach. A girl named Poppy stands on the precipice of history. Tomorrow is the biggest day of her life: D-Day. Along with her friend Evie, Poppy finds herself volunteering in a Southsea hospital, preparing for the arrival of casualties of the D-Day landings. Poppy has always wanted to be a war hero, but instead finds herself being asked to do the unthinkable - provide a German prisoner of war with compassionate and tender care. A beautifully written play about the role of women on the Home Front during the Second World War, Tender Loving Care premiered at the Square Tower Portsmouth in June 2014, in a production by The New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth.
