Unity forged in battle. This remarkable story of bravery, romance, and sacrifice follows a group of Canadian soldiers convalescing in a field hospital after facing the horrors of Vimy Ridge. The soldiers battle with their memories of the past, as a young nurse from Nova Scotia tends to their wounds both obvious and concealed in this striking WWI drama from Governor General’s Award-winning playwright Vern Thiessen.
WCT Artistic Director James MacDonald directed the highly praised premiere of Vimy and is proud to revise it here in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War.
