Knit one, pearl 1942! More Power to Your Knitting, Nell! tells the story of aspiring singer Sadie Goldstein. Sadie has always wanted to be a star, and she can’t believe her luck when she’s hired as a radio host, to galvanize the ‘soldier girls at home’ who knit for the troops overseas. The only problem is…Sadie hates knitting!
Featuring the WWII classics We’ll Meet Again and Autumn Leaves, as well as several historic knitting (yes, knitting!) songs.
Winner of several performance prizes, including: Best Solo Show (Orlando Fringe), Most Outstanding Performance (London Fringe Festival).
“Featuring hilarious songs about knitting, and one of the most amazing voices I’ve ever heard. Five Stars.”
