Joyce Branagh is a freelance theatre director, performer and writer, living in the North West and working all over the UK and beyond. She is very keen on unearthing stories of interesting women, and first came across the heroine of this piece whilst researching women’s lives in WW1. She loves football, but is completely rubbish at it.
Luckily Evie Priestley (featured in the film) is a rising football star, currently playing for Burnley FC Women. She happens to live in the same town as Joyce and very kindly filmed some of her training during lockdown.
