What did you do in the War, Mama?

What Did You Do In the War, Mama? is set in 1917 at the height of World War One when the great powers of Europe are locked in a lethal conflict. Casualty numbers are enormous. There seems no way out of the stalemate. One evening, King George V and his advisors, including the Prime Minister, David Lloyd George, Army Commander of the British forces, Douglas Haig and Munitions Minister, Winston Churchill, are poisoned at dinner. Seriously ill, the men can no longer work and it falls to the Queen Consort, Mary, to find a solution to this dangerous situation.  And the question then becomes – what would happen if women ruled the world?
