A GALLANT LIFE

theSpace on North Bridge, Edinburgh Fringe
August 1918 and it’s finally beginning to look like an Allied victory is on the cards. The Kippers, the performing members of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry in St Omer, are putting on a show to celebrate. Amongst them is Muriel Thompson, motor-racing champion, suffragette, ambulance driver, and decorated war veteran. But where did she come from and how did she end up here? A true and heart-warming new musical from an acclaimed company about what happens when a woman defies expectations and takes matters into her own hands.
