Selected songs from “White Mouse the Musical” the story of Nancy Wake an unsung hero to be produced in Melbourne early in 2016.
The White Mouse was the Gestapo's name for Nancy Wake, an Australian WW2 hero who worked closely with the French Resistance and evaded capture throughout the occupation of France.
Nancy was one of the few female special agents to survive the war, and her story has always
fascinated me. She took many risks to fight for freedom and led over 2000 Resistance fighters, all men, in open confrontations with the Germans to defeat Nazism. She survived torture and other horrors and lived till the ripe old age of 98!
