VIMY by Governor General's Award winning, Winnipeg playwright Vern Thiessen, 
tells the story of the experiences and memories of a group of soldiers and their nurse 
in the days following the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April of 1917. 

Why do we pass over some moments in our history yet mythologize others? 
Why do we suppress some events while others scorch themselves into our minds? 
Is there a gap between our memory as a country and our recollection as individuals? 
What is the no-man’s-land between reality and memory, truth and dream, 
history and mythology? 


The New Curtain Theatre Company is the Clarenville area's first professional theatre company. Its focus is on theatre from around the world with a focus on Canadian work and community outreach elements from youth acting studios to social awareness.
Artistic Managing Director - Geoff Adams
