Unity (1918)

By Kevin Kerr

Directed by Jamie Dunsdon
October 19-28, 2017
West Village Theatre

In the small town of Unity, Saskatchewan, life is pretty simple, even while World War I rages across the Atlantic.  That is until a deadly plague called The “Spanish” Flu strikes, killing old and young in its wake.  As fear of the dreaded flu begins to fill the town with paranoia, drastic measures are taken to keep the illness out: the town is quarantined, trains are forbidden to stop, no one can enter, and the borders are sealed. Can a town called Unity stick together to survive an enemy that no one can see?  A gothic romance, filled with dark comedy and the desperate embrace of life at the edge of death.  Winner of the 2002 Governor General’s Award for Drama.
