How do you handle your 8.45 when your man is in a firefight with the Taleban on Breakfast News? Can six months respite from shaving your legs ever make up for half a year spooning a hot water bottle?
Jo has to learn all these things when her partner, Steve, deploys to Afghanistan…And while he dodges IED’s, Jo is left to deal with her own unexploded device : her future mother in law!
Secrets and lies detonate in this life-affirming new play written by the wife of a serving Marine. In the winter that Military Wives topped the charts, Encore Drama’s production of Jo’s War will lift the lid on the impact of deployment for an unseen army of women in 2012.
