Very recently Polly Pattison discovered a hoard of letters from her mother to her father in the early years of WWII. Sensitively dramatizing her mothers words Polly relives the humour and pathos of those dark days. Free of pretence or guile, the letters offer rare insights into the everyday life of a young mother detailing experiences which Everywoman shared. Those women kept the home fires burning. Keep Your Chin Up is a tribute to them. It is for the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of those women whose lives were torn apart by the outbreak of war.
