Hallow Ground – Women Doctors in War

History cannot be repeated!

20 June 2019

7.30pm

History cannot be repeated!

Follow the personal journeys of four women, Lilian, Mary, Tam and Catherine, united in their determination to utilise their skills in the field of medicine on active service within the military. From the pioneers of World War One, first denied military service, throughout the battles of World War two- through contemporary conflicts, and as peacekeepers in times of humanitarian crisis; these and other stories come to life in vivid accounts of revelation, loss, struggle and kinship. Together they share moments of hope and humour that punctuate the otherwise harrowing task of conflict medicine.

A stunning performance. Based on the book ‘Not for Glory – A century of service by medical women to the Australian Army and its Allies’ this play is a faithful and moving tribute to the women who have served their nation for over a century and reminds us, not just what women are capable of, but what they have already done.
