‘AN EXTRAORDINARY PLAY CELEBRATING THE LIFE AND HEROISM OF FRANCES CLUETT, VOLUNTARY AID DETACHMENT NURSE DURING WW1′
A play commemorating Frances’ work as a volunteer nurse during WW1 – from Newfoundland, Canada she was shipped overseas and found herself in Rouen, France for 4 years. During these years, ‘she became as heroic as the men and boys who fought’
This play is inspired by her letters home, detailing the horrors and heartbreak she witnessed, also revealing how her humour and resilience captured the love and loyalty of all she encountered.
