Capitol Theatre presents "Prairie Nurse" by Marie Beath Badian

Date:Saturday, July 22 & Sunday, July 23, 2023
Time:2 p.m.
Location:    Cameco Capitol Arts Centre (20 Queen St., Port Hope)
Cost:$45

In the late 1960s, two Filipino nurses come to work at a small-town Saskatchewan hospital. Cultural clashes, personality differences, homesickness, and the amorous but dim-witted goalie from the local hockey team complicate the women's lives and create chaos at the hospital. Add a doctor who is more concerned with fishing than his patients, and an overly romantic candy striper, and you've got the makings of a story that will have you rolling in the aisles. Based on the true story of her mother's immigration to Canada, Badian's play is part romantic comedy, part farce, and all fun. Performances at 8 p.m. on July 14 and 15, 19 to 22, and 26 to 29. Performances at 2 p.m. on July 16, 18 and 19, 22 and 23, 25 and 26, and 29 and 30.
