I'll Tell You This For Nothing - My Mother the War Hero

I'll Tell You This For Nothing - My Mother the War Hero

Phyllis JasonSmith (pictured below) was one of only two NZ women awarded with France’s highest decoration, the Légion d’Honneur, for extreme bravery in WWII.  After enrolling as a nurse in the British Army, Phyllis was sent to the front lines, finding the love of her life there. She was one of numerous    nurses who risked their lives in the war – why was Phyllis honoured?

War, courage, romance and danger – potent ingredients for fine drama – and Phyllis was a great  raconteur.

Phyllis’s daughter Kate, an award-winning director and actor (also pictured below), has crafted this dramatic and often humorous tale of her mother’s life into a fascinating 70-minute solo performance.

As Theatreview said in its review of Kate’s play:  “Versatile, skilled and charismatic, Kate JasonSmith’s performance is a mighty achievement in its own right.”

Join us for an unforgettable performance - one night only 7:30pm, Friday 6 March 2020.
