Event Notes


Tempting Providence; Written by Robert Chafe Directed by Jillian Keiley with Assistant Director Adam Brake She delivered more than 700 babies, extracted at least 5,000 teeth, set broken limbs, performed kitchen table operations by lamplight and was known throughout Newfoundland and Labrador as "Florence Nightingale of the North." This is a wonderful heartfelt portrayal of Nurse Myra Bennett who for more than 50 years was the only medical aide along the almost 350 miles of rugged coastline on the Great Northern Peninsula. …………………………….Price $35+hst - adults; $17.50+hst - students
