Lifeboat Summary

September 1940. World War II rages on. Two British teenage evacuees escaping war-torn Britain meet on an ocean liner bound for the safety of Canada. Separated from their family, Bess and Beth find friendship through their shared love of the movies, especially The Wizard of Oz. When the ship is torpedoed by a German U-boat, their hopes are shattered, and they are united by their determination to get back to the warmth and comfort of home….there’s no place like home. On board a set that transforms from home to bomb shelter to ocean liner, Scotland’s award-winning Catherine Wheels Theatre Company tell this captivating true story of adventure, courage and friendship with poignancy and humor.
