Taylor Stutchbury and Linda MacLean portray Doreen and Brenda, two mothers who hide in the London underground train stations while German bombs rain down on London, in April 1941; the show is directed by Cathie Young.

It’s the second Watts play for the company that, two years ago, mounted his work about the Second World War.

Watts is a member of the Port Moody-based theatre troupe, which is known for its Venosta radio shows.
