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 the Supper Room of the Kyeamba Smith Hall at the Wagga Wagga Showground. Book online or at the Wagga Show Office.

The Venue

The longest of the recruiting marches to Sydney – 350 miles – began in Wagga Wagga. They were the Kangaroos, and among their number are the recipients of a Victoria Cross, two Distinguished Conduct Medals and seven Military Medals.

In 2015, a re-enactment of the Kangaroos recruiting march will leave from the Showground almost a year to the day after we will be there.

It is a fitting place to perform Through These Lines — and to maintain Wagga’s strong connection to the history of the Great War and to honour its contribution.
