Dates, address & more

The wonderful true story of a remarkably normal woman - Florence ‘Flo’ Smith - performed live on stage by Ursula Mohan.

It's 1969 and a woman looks back on her life in London. From the Boer War to The Summer of Love, Flo Smith, daughter, sister, wife, mother, widow and grandmother recalls with horror, humour, tears and joy those turbulent times at home and in the world beyond her front door.

Written and directed by Christopher Saul, this play is based on his book of the same name, taken from the audio recordings he made of his grandmother, Flo Smith. Flo told of her Victorian childhood, her marriage to a young man who was wounded in WWI, her struggle to feed her children in the 1930s, and her experiences of the London Blitz. Produced by Giles Shenton.
