Idle Women is a new musical, written and performed by THE BUSY LIZZIES theatre group and has been wowing audiences at arts festivals along the South Coast in 2023. Based on the women working on canals during World War Two, it has themes that resonate today: purpose, friendship, gender, sexuality, and identity, with great tunes!

The Busy Lizzies are now taking to the road in a series of concerts where they’ll share the wonderful tunes which fizz along at the centre of the show, backed by their live band. It’s jazzy, it’s skiffely, its romantic, it’s tearjerking, it’s inspiring, it’s fun!

“The very best shows in musical theatre contain three ingredients, a good story, good songs and a good cast to deliver them. Goodness, Idle Women does that by the bucketful and listen out for the Bucket and Chuck it song, which is a sheer delight.” – Brighton and Hove News May 2023
