Join Scirocco Drama and me as we launch the published version of Liberation Days. The launch features scenes from the play read by Edmonton actors, as well as light refreshments. Liberation Days premiered at Theatre Calgary in 2014 and has since been produced across Canada. The play has been nominated for a Betty Mitchell Award (Calgary), a Robert Merritt Award (Nova Scotia) and has been short-listed for the Gwen Pharis Ringwood Prize in Playwriting (Alberta). Set in the Netherlands during the months immediately following the end of World War II, Liberation Days follows Emma, a Dutch woman who seeks liberation through a relationship with a young Canadian soldier.
