Nursing Lives

When Flo, a fiesty seventy-something, learns that the hospital she trained at during the Second World War is being demolished, she decides to take one last look and stop the bulldozers in their tracks.

Her illicit visit becomes a personal celebration of friendship, courage, adventure and romance. But is what Flo remembers really the truth, or is history ready to be re-written?

Nursing lives is a love story set in the early 1980s, and takes us back to the hard-working, heart-breaking, swing-dancing world of the UK's wartime hospitals.

There will also be a post-show discussion with the company.

Suitable for ages 12+
Running time: 110 minutes including interval
