Mrs Henderson Presents Synopsis

If there was one place which defined the spirit of London during the Blitz, it was the Windmill Theatre; its doors always open to receive the boys' home from leave, its famous nude tableaux guaranteeing full houses round the clock- a permanent 'V' sign to the Luftwaffe. The camaraderie of the theatre was also at its height during the war - a little world of big laughs, close friendships and lost loves. And like the war, it could not last forever.
