This year our country remembers the outbreak of World War II 80 years ago and commemorates the 75-year anniversary of  the liberation brought by the D-Day Landings. Let our young cast take you on a trip back to the home front of wartime London and into the lives of the families on Petticoat Lane.

The story centres on the relationship between a Jewish family, the Blitzteins, and a cockney family, the Lockes, in 1940s East End London. Mrs. Blitztein and Alfie Locke work at adjacent market stalls and can’t stand each other. Against the backdrop of Hitler’s bombing intensifying, their teenage children, Carol and Georgie, fall in love. Will Mrs. Blitztein and Alfie be able to bury the hatchet and become friends?
