A dramatic, educational and emotive experience that explores little-told stories of the events of Dec. 6, 1917. It is a day that has become synonymous with tales of heroism, survival and of how a community fought against the disaster and the elements. It is a tale of how Canadians emerged from under terrible condidions to help each other.
It is exactly one hundred years after the two ships collided, causing a gigantic and devastating explosion. As the characters share their stories, experiences and history, we the audience experience the tribute to the diverse communities and cultures in Nova Scotia. It’s a story of survival and growth, of destruction and hope. But, this story is not born of fiction: it happened.
