Unity (1918)

by Kevin Kerr
directed byGlynis Leyshon*

Part Gothic Romance, part pandemic horror story.

A deadly and mysterious plague erupts across the world. A small town in Saskatchewan finds the Spanish Flu knocking at its door. Infused with biting dark humour and a deeply human touch, playwright Kevin Kerrs Governor Generals Award-winning play tells the story of ordinary townsfolk quarantined under the shadow of death. Is their love and hope enough in the face of the unknown?

considerable humour in these dark days. - The New York Times
