Synopsis


I'd never even heard of Estonia before we got sent there.


I expect they'd no heard a whole lot about Greenock.


Set in the near future where three young women have become the first female soldiers on front-line duty.


Trained to shoot, fight and kill, Cormack, Findlay and Davies have thrown themselves into the world's most dangerous workplace, while others still question their right to serve at all.


Kate Bowen's debut play tackles the physical challenges, emotional demands and societal impact of three women navigating a man's world.
