“…considerable humour in these dark days.” -The New York Times
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 Kerr’s Governor General’s 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?
