Preview of Gros Morne Theatre Festival’s new play by Bernie Stapleton, Our Fanny

Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador‘s Gros Morne Theatre Festival aims to tell the stories of Newfoundland and Labrador, and now they’re bringing a brand new story to the stage. Written by Bernie Stapleton, Our Fanny tells the story of Frances Cluett from Belleoram, Newfoundland. TNL describes the play as:

In 1916, [Fanny] joined the Volunteer Aid Detachment and was shipped overseas to London, ultimately serving for four years at the 10th General Hospital in Rouen, France. The play is inspired by her many letters to home, detailing the horrors and heartbreak she witnessed, and revealing how her humor and resilience captured the love and loyalty of all she encountered.

Check out the video above for a preview of the play from director Jeff Pitcher.
