Tilly & the Spitfires - a play

21st September 2019

tilly and the spitfires

On the eve of the 80th anniversary of World War II, Winchester’s professional theatre company, 2TimeTheatre presents ‘Tilly and the Spitfires’, an original drama by local playwright, Rachel O’Neill.

‘Tilly’ is based the struggle of pioneering engineer and feminist icon, Beatrice ‘Tilly’ Shilling as she battles authority and societal expectations to save the Spitfire. Her clever ‘fix’ – known cheekily as ‘Miss Shillings’ Orifice’ - might well have changed the outcome of the War. But she has no ‘fix’ for the dramatic undercurrents taking place in her personal life as she learns a dark secret about her friend and housemate Muriel.
