About Army Girl

Directed by Judey Bignell and staring Katie Smale, and singer Esme Sarfas. The production is being staged by Damian Darkness Productions, and will run over five nights from 7th to 11th September 2021. ‘Army Girl is best described as a stream of consciousness prose poem about Northern Ireland in 1974/5, two of its bloodiest years. The work of female soldiers in covert army units has seldom been told but I believe they were the pathfinders for the female combat soldiers of today. The songs are intended to say something beyond the troubles in Northern Ireland and something universal about the life of a soldier. So the themes include love in wartime, return from war, death and survival. There is an oral tradition of storytelling within military life, hopefully Army Girl will be seen in this tradition’.
