Vimy | Spotlight Theatre Series
The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Western Canada Theatre’s Vimy on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 starting at 7:30pm. Vimy is the first show in our 2018/19 SPOTLIGHT Theatre Series.
Unity forged in battle. This striking story of bravery, romance and sacrifice follows a group of Canadian soldiers, as they convalesce in a field hospital after facing the horrors of Vimy Ridge. In this striking WWI drama from Governor General's Award-winning playwright Vern Thiessen, the soldiers battle with their memories of the past, as a young nurse from Nova Scotia tends to their wounds both obvious and concealed. 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.
