After critically acclaimed short seasons in museums and at boutique festivals, the stirring and courageous story of Sister Anzac comes to Q Theatre’s Loft, Tue 23 – Sun 28 August before a season of special promenade performances at the Auckland Maritime Museum, Wed 31 August – Sat 10 September. This insightful play celebrates and honours the indomitable spirit of our kiwi women who went to war.

In 1915, during one of WWI’s darkest hours, The Angels of Mercy arrived at Gallipoli. Aboard the Maheno heroic kiwi nurses prepared to battle wounds with medicine, pain with tenderness, and their own military with steely resolve.

Sister Anzac is a poignant and personal story of love and bravery, of women who battled the military in order to serve their country as Nurses on the first hospital ship, The Maheno. The nurses on the New Zealand ship were seen as ‘Angels of Mercy’ by the soldiers and were revered by those who gratefully received their care.
