Based on a true story, the tenacious and resilient Myra Bennett leaves her life in England in the early 20th century and journeys to the remote village of Daniel’s Harbour in Newfoundland to be the region’s medical practitioner. Despite the cold, harsh winters and the townspeople’s initial skepticism about her abilities, Bennet determines to confound expectations through her down-to-earth courage and fortitude. Can she earn the community’s respect? An inspiring and highly theatrical tale of heroism, sprinkled with generous doses of humour and romance, this play asks big questions about whether life happens simply by chance, or by the hand of a larger force unseen.
