Penned by the renowned author of Balconville this powerful drama gives a voice to the disillusioned working class women employed at the British Munitions Factory in Verdun, Quebec during World War I. With tensions running high across the country over conscription and linguistic and religious issues, dedicated mothers, wives, sisters and sweethearts assemble artillery shells to support the war effort and inadvertently find themselves assembled to bring about change. This munitions manufacturer employed over 4,000 women, including Fennario’s mother. Tragically, the city of Verdun sacrificed more soldiers to both World Wars than any other place in Canada.
