OUR FRANCES by Theatre Newfoundland Labrador

Canadian Company, Theatre Newfoundland Labrador, return to Lancashire with an extraordinary play celebrating the life and heroism of Frances Cluett, VAD.

Frances was born and lived in Belleoram, Newfoundland.  In 1916, she joined the Volunteer Aid Detachment.  After a scant month of medical training she was shipped overseas and served for four years at the 10th General Hospital in Rouen, France.  Although she would likely argue the point, during those years she became as heroic as the men and boys who fought.

The play is inspired by her many letters home, detailing the horrors and heart-

break she witnessed, and revealing how her humour and resilience captured the love and loyalty of all she encountered.
