About this show

The "gut girls" of Deptford, England, circa 1900, are rowdy, boisterous, have mouths like sailors and are as strong as the oxen they gut. By day they are up to their knees in freshly slaughtered animal entrails, but in the evenings they are their own women, financially independent to a degree rare for young working-class women in Edwardian England. Enter Lady Helena, an aristocrat on a mission to teach the gut girls some manners and get them employed as domestics. The result is a total surrender of their independence, spirit and way of life. Directed by Michaela Goldhaber.
