Wind in the Roses
Wind in the Roses is a musical play, set in a corner of Bethnal Green, in London's East End, during the 'Blitz' between September 1940 and May 1941. It centres on the lives of ordinary people, caught up in a war that changed things forever, and of the enduring nature of the human spirit. It hopes to celebrate the richness and diversity of those characters, and their stoical good humour, while at the same time offering glimpses into the gritty reality of the suffering they endured.
Foremost among the memories of some survivors is the songs they sang . One survivor said that those songs were the only thing that kept people going through the grimmest times. And so inevitably, we are including old favourites from 'Roll Out the Barrel' to 'We'll Meet Again'.
