Somewhere across the valley they have a graveyard, and later in the afternoon we heard the firing of the Salute and the “Last Post” – Sister Helen Fowlds, Lemnos, 1915

Lismore City Hall

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

The Venue

This is one of only two traditional traditional theatre spaces on the tour and the largest venue we will use during the NSW regional tour of Through These Lines.

Our other venues take audiences into unusual spaces. Lismore gives us an opportunity to stretch our wings and fill a larger space with Florence’s story while still maintaining an intimacy with those sitting around us.

It will be a grand opportunity to let Florence fly.
