Description: This fall, Theatre New Brunswick will share the world premiere production of Blue Birds, the latest play by Governor General Award winning Canadian playwright Vern Thiessen. Blue Birds is set in Étaples, France, 1918. Nurses Christy, Maggie, and Bab have crossed oceans to care for wounded Canadian soldiers in the Great War. Despite the terrible injuries they must deal with, they manage to stay hopeful as the dangers of the front draw closer to their hospital. Through it all, the three women find friendship, independence, power, and influence in a place where men, once again, are trying to destroy the world.
