Europe, 1939. Adolf Hitler's armies are conquering nation after nation, and in the face of the Nazi threat, Canadian millionaire William Stephenson convinces Churchill and Roosevelt to combine forces in a joint covert effort. Stephenson assembles an elite team of spies, including the unlikeliest of agents: six irrepressible young women. AGENTS OF INFLUENCE is their story, a "spy noir musical" that seeks to answer: just who were these bold women and why would they sacrifice their very lives for a war that refused to accept them or recognize them?
