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
At both Mittagong shows, audiences will be treated to a special performance at the interval by Southern Highland’s very own Rural Commemorative Choir.
The Mittagong Memorial Hall has a long association with the district’s mining history, its war contribution, and the performing arts — where better to perform in the beautiful Southern Highlands?
The historic Mittagong Memorial Hall is now better known now as the 200 seat Mittagong Playhouse. The adjoining building houses the Berrima District Historical and Family History Society.
It’s also just down the road from a very significant NSW WWI site, the Berrima Internment Camp, at Berrima Gaol, that held men of German and Austrian descent.
