Synopsis

A musical play that chronicles the circumstances surrounding the ill-fated Dieppe Raid of August 19, 1942. Set primarily in a victory bond rally in New Brunswick, the play speaks to the tremendous activity on the home front of training pilots and or women working in non traditional factory jobs. Originally a bilingual play with about a 50-50 split between French and English, the show was adapted in 2004 to be about 90% French.
