About this event

Written by Vern Thiessen | Directed by Natasha MacLellan | Featuring Kirsten Alter, Mélanie LeBlanc and Sharisse LeBrun.

Bluebirds is set in Étaples, France, 1918. Nurses Christy, Maggie, and Bab have crossed oceans to care for wounded Canadian soldiers in the Great War. Despite the terrible injuries they must deal with, they manage to stay hopeful as the dangers of the front draw closer to their hospital. Through it all, the three women find friendship, independence, power, and influence in a place where men, once again, are trying to destroy the world.

**This is a world premiere production**
