      SHATTERBOX THEATRE PRESENTS ARMSTRONG'S WAR
      A Play by Governor General Award Winner Colleen Murphy

      In honour of The Regent Theatre's 100th year anniversary in November, Shatterbox Theatre will be donating 100% of ticket proceeds from all three shows to The Regent! The Regent is a charitable organization that relies on the support of the community, its volunteers and membership.

      ABOUT THE PLAY

      After suffering an injury during a military tour of Afghanistan, Michael, a young soldier, is recovering in the rehabilitation wing of a hospital. The last thing he wants is to spend time with a twelve-year-old girl, but Halley, a spirited Pathfinder and self-described “reading fiend,” is eager to earn her community service badge. The pair is at odds from the start, but they find a shared interest in The Red Badge of Courage, the classic American Civil War novel, which spurs them to reveal their own stories. As their friendship grows, uncomfortable truths are exposed and questioned, redefining the meaning of courage and heroism.

      Armstrong’s War was commissioned by the Banff Arts Centre for it’s 75th anniversary celebration. Colleen Murphy is a Governor General Award Winner.
