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.
