It’s winter in the prairies, late 1960s. Two young nurses, just off the plane from the Philippines, arrive at a rural hospital in Arborfield, Saskatchewan – population 300. No one can tell the two nurses apart; including the dim-witted lab technician at the hospital who falls in love with one of them but accidentally courts both. Homesickness, unfamiliar customs, and amorous advances complicate the women’s lives.
A culture-clashing comedy of errors with heart, PRAIRIE NURSE was inspired by the playwright’s mother and the legacy she and others with similar experiences have contributed to the fabric of Canada.
