Through These Lines

An original Australian play based on the letters and diaries of Australian army nurses serving in WWI.

Through These Lines is an intimate and unique theatrical experience, bringing to life the extraordinary contributions made by the women of the Australian Army Nursing Service during the Great War: the friendships they formed, the fears and dangers they faced, the laughter and the camaraderie they shared, their hopes, dreams, private losses and personal victories.

The play follows Sister Florence Whiting on her 4 year journey - from departure on the troopship Kyarra to tours of duty in the Dardanelles, Lemnos, Egypt, France and the Western Front.

For its third season, Through These Lines is proudly presented by Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Liverpool City Council and the Greek Festival of Sydney.
