Poppy + George



Diane Samuels


Nick Hern Books

“A winningly big-hearted new play that explores gender and identity at a time of huge change... funny but deeply moving.” —The Stage

“Fascinating... Erotic tension combines with social argument... the climactic scenes have real power... moments of gorgeous sensuality.” —Guardian

A romantic drama with music inspired by the days of music hall and beyond, from the author of the modern classic Kindertransport. Poppy + George is a beguiling romance that draws on a world of female impersonators, popular song and double entendre. It was first performed at the Watford Palace Theatre in February 2016.

It is 1919. The Great War is over and Poppy Wright arrives in London to make her mark on the world. In the East End, she finds work in Smith's tailor and costumiers workshop, where she falls for the dashing chauffeur George.

Emerging from the losses of war, Poppy finds a new role to play in forging a modern era
