An immigration tale with a healthy dose of laughter

Sorry - all shows sold out!

Penny and Puring arrive from the Philippines in 1967 to take a two-year contract as nurses in a small Saskatchewan town. Small town life is far from simple, as cultural clashes, personality differences, homesickness, and the amorous but dim-witted goalie from the local hockey team complicate the women's lives. Based on the true story of her mother's immigration to Canada, Badian's play is part romantic comedy, part farce, and part cultural history, celebrating the courage of those who leave their homes to make a new life in a strange land.

"Pairie Nurse, a terrific new romantic comedy, would make a great TV pilot." - NOW Toronto
