About the Show

“…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?

Unity (1918) was developed as part of Touchstone Theatre’s Playwright in Residence Program during the 1999/200 season, and was originally produced by that company in March 2001 at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre.
