Born in the Ruins

October 25, 2019

A short play by Christopher Bailey and Susan Jacoby as part of the WHO sponsored work, tells the story of a nurse and a midwife helping an expectant mother give birth in an urban conflict zone, while the ghost of the father looks on. This is a powerful and moving piece about safe healthcare, and is timely in the lead up to the year of the nurse and the midwife in 2020.

Starring: Carrie Ellman-Larsen, Aline Salloum, Adam Stevens and Hope Garland. Directed by Christopher Bailey and Hope Garland.  Featuring music by Zoë Keating – “Optimist” – Written and performed by Zoë Keating (020202 Music (ASCAP). All rights reserved. ZOEKEATING.COM)
