In the fall of 1918, as soldiers return to Canada from distant battlefields, a world devastated by four years of war is suddenly hit by a mysterious and deadly plague – the “Spanish flu”. The illness strikes anybody, even people in the prime of life. The rapid progression toward mortality brings home the terror, the panic, and the sense of helplessness of World War I; more people die of this epidemic than are killed in battle throughout the war. 

graveyard on prairie landscapeUnity (1918), written by Kevin Kerr, is a revealing examination of what happens when a deadly virus arrives in a town in the middle of Saskatchewan that was thought to be safe – too distant, too remote – from an epidemic devastating populations elsewhere.

The Department of Drama and Speech Communication presents Unity (1981), directed by Professor Andy Houston, lighting designed by Arun Srinivasan, set designed by student Maddy Samms, and costumes designed by student Mark Haasnoot.

Afternoon shows at 12 noon on November 18 and 20.
