Athough they tire us
These jobs inspire us
The war has changed our lives
We’re not spectators
We’re not just airmen’s wives

Girlfriends is set during the second world war at the height of the
Blitz and follows recruits of the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force
(WAAF). It’s 1941 and the chances are that only 1 in 5 bomber
command aircrew will complete 30 tours of duty.

This inspiring and powerful musical shines a light on the pressures,
expectations and dilemmas women faced supporting the war effort and
how women rose to the challenge with courage, stoicism, camaraderie
and inner strength. All from different backgrounds with different
temperaments, they become friends in this unusual melting pot.

 

Girlfriends Cast List

 

PERFORMED BY ARRANGEMENT WITH FABER MUSIC LTD. LONDON

Yr Ail Ryfel Byd yw cefndir ‘Girlfriends’, pan oedd y bomio ar ei
anterth, ac mae’n dilyn recriwtiaid Awyrlu Cynorthwyol y Menywod
(WAAF). 1941 yw’r flwyddyn a’r tebygrwydd yw mai dim ond 1 o bob
5 criw awyr y Rheolaeth Awyrennau Bomio fydd yn goroesi 30
o deithiau dyletswydd.

Mae’r sioe gerdd bwerus hon, sydd yn codi’r ysbryd, yn taflu goleuni ar y
pwysau, disgwyliadau a’r cyfyng-gyngor a wynebodd menywod wrth
gefnogi’r rhyfel a sut fu iddynt wynebu’r her â dewrder, stoiciaeth,
cwmnigarwch a gwytnwch mewnol. I gyd ohonynt o gefndiroedd gwahanol
gyda chymeriadau gwahanol, fe ddônt yn ffrindiau yn y pair anarferol hwn.
