A powerful story of London’s women during World War One

Home Fires explores the impact of World War One through the eyes of women – Mothers, Wives, Sweethearts, and Munitions Workers – using actual letters, diaries, poetry and song.

Featuring an all-female cast, this musical play brings to the stage the real-life stories and experiences of Sydenham’s gas workers and their families. The result is a touching, sometimes comic, and engaging story which embraces universal themes of comradeship, love and loss.

Home Fires was developed as part of the Heritage Lottery and Arts Council England-funded musical theatre project TILL THE BOYS COME HOME, and premiered at the prestigious Sydenham Arts Festival 2014 in July.

Press for previous productions:

It’s not often that you see a piece of theatre that makes you laugh and brings you close to tears at the same time, but Jonathan Kaufman’s drama succeeds in doing both…This is a very enjoyable play that deserves to be seen by a much wider audience. The Stage on Halcyon Days

Brilliant Time Out on The Three Musketeers

Energetic, fast-paced and tremendous fun, Spontaneous Productions’ latest effort is hugely entertaining.  South London Press on The Three Musketeers
