Résumé: It is presented as a show within a show. A war-damaged theatre in Germany in 1945 is being used to stage a tribute to Winston Churchill on the eve of the Gentral Election which is bound to see him re-elected. At the dress-rehearsal the performers are a mixed-bag: there is an ENSA group of Shakespearean actors touring “Julius Caesar” and twelve dancing girls (Doris and her Daisies) from an ENSA variety tour. The musicians and stage staff are recruited from the soldiers of the British Army on the Rhine and a visiting American colonel has been persuaded to take part as Roosevelt’s special envoy. The overall director, Jack Craven, takes the part of Churchill, with the leading Shakespeare lady, Stella, playing the role of Clemmie Churchill. There is even a German director who defies the fraternisation rules to help get the show on.
