Details

In 1939 Florence is a young trainee nurse thrown directly into the harsh realities of work on the ward. She encounters the wrath of Sister Martin; endures and enjoys the pranks of fellow nurses, falls in love with her soldier sweetheart, Johnny; and confronts the heart wrenching inequalities in the use of the new super drug penicillin... will her dream of saving lives come true? A full-mask theatre production alive with visual inventiveness, evocative music and song, physical theatre and 1940s dance sequences. The work originates from the true stories of nurses at the former Worcester Royal Infirmary. At its heart, Nursing Lives is a human story that celebrates nurses at work and play during the years of World War II. Nursing Lives is funny, touching, at times harrowing, but always uplifting and unforgettable. Recommended for ages 8-adult. Running Time: 80mins plus a 15 min interval
