Written to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of D-Day, Egg and Chips for Winston tells the true story of a remarkable woman, Eva Rowland. Set in wartime Britain, it follows her life in The Salvation Army, feeding the troops from Southampton to Thurso. We meet her husband and her first love, and see through her eyes the harsh reality of war brought to life on the stage before us. There are some harrowing moments and real sadness is evoked by several scenes, particularly those where we see the young men who went down on HMS Hood, and later the first prisoners of war return from Burma. While clearly showing Eva’s calling to serve, it also shows her compassion for the brave and vulnerable young men and women called to arms.
The musical play is written by Emmy Wilde who sings all the songs, and Paula Danholm, who directs. The show features songs from the Forties and music from The Edinburgh City Band of The Salvation Army.
