Absolutely brilliant! Don’t miss it — the story of Australia’s WWI army nurses told with exhilarating style.
Follow Sister Florence Whiting on her four year odyssey — from departure on the troopship Kyarra, to tours of duty in the Dardanelles, on Lemnos, in Egypt, France and the Western Front.
Based on the letters and diaries of Australian army nurses, Through These Lines offers an intimate and unique theatrical experience, performed by a talented ensemble cast with authentic costumes and props for an immersive experience of the tumult of war.
We were stunned by the performances … the cast and crew can be very proud of the show … a treasure in the 100th anniversary year of the War to End Wars
Uplifting, terrifying and sad all at the same time … The cast was absolutely brilliant and swept the entire audience up in the history, struggles, happiness of love and crippling devastation of war. Get to see this show if you can, you won’t be sorry
Poignant, thought provoking, great balance of pathos, humour and insight
Performances take place in a unique heritage-listed WWII bunker.
We recommend you book tickets online — limited tickets and cash only sales at the door (if not sold out prior to performance).
We stray a few decades into the future by using a WWII bunker but the structure is a great fit for the Nissen huts that housed casualty clearing stations and hospitals across the fields of France and Flanders.
The Coffs bunker was built for the RAAF and among its service men and women was a young Gough Whitlam.
By 1984, The Bunker had become derelict. Fortunately, the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour City recognised its value and saved the structure.
For ambience, The Bunker fits perfectly with the Through These Lines atmosphere.
