Event description

Description

Devoted Service is a powerful and moving drama filled with insight and poignancy that is derived directly from the true stories of five remarkable women during the First World War.

Be transported by a short film into Staff Nurse Mary 'Margorie' Marr's autograph book. Sr Marr whilst working in Sydney, captured the surprising and heartfelt poetry and musings of soldiers who returned to Australia to recover from the trauma of Gallipoli.

Following the film, Devoted Service then immerses the audience in four different experiences of war. Taking actual words and personal accounts from the diaries and letters of three nurses and a matron, you will witness how, from the moment the last ribbon connecting them to Sydney breaks, through to the end and aftermath of the war in 1918/19, the courage and conviction of these women endures.

At times humorous and always heartbreakingly human, this new, live performance piece, created and produced by the Anzac Memorial, is a catalyst for further exploration.

At the conclusion of the piece, Anzac Memorial Guides will lead the audience to the Centenary Exhibition to further explore the nurses’ personal objects on display.
