‘Round my way, the boys would drive to the top of the car park - they'd drive to the edge full speed. I wanted to get involved. They said oh aye Sarah, no bother - if you sit on Gerro's knee, he'll hold you nice and tight. Well, I thought to myself, that sounds like a full breach of health and safety regulations.
So I joined the army.
I drive the car now lads. And get paid to do it.’
Kate Bowen's taut thriller about the first generation of British women in close combat roles looks at gender politics in the world's most dangerous workplace.

Close Quarters - Page to Stage Q&A - Wed 7 November
Join us for a Page to Stage Q&A with the Cast and Director, Kate Wasserberg. We are inviting teachers to submit any questions beforehand that their students may want to ask about the rehearsal process, and taking the play from script to performance. This post-show talk will be filmed so that you can share it in class and students can view it outside of school at their leisure to help prepare them for their Live Theatre Review exam.
