An extraordinary play celebrating the life and heroism of Frances Cluett, VAD.  Fanny was born and lived in Belleoram, Newfoundland. In 1916, she 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.
