About the Event

ABOUT THE PLAY A drama inspired by the true story of the mysterious disappearance of the playwright's father and his co-pilot in a routine flight from the Comox Air Base on March 22nd, 1956. A taut investigative tale and a moving testimony to the love and tenacity of a woman determined to uncover the truth, the play is also a journey toward learning to live with our ghosts. Our Ghosts was an official selection of the Women Playwright’s International Conference, 2018, Santiago, Chile. It received a first production in Oct 2019 by Nanaimo’s Western Edge Theatre.
