Help get Hallowed Ground to Edinburgh!

We are thrilled to have been invited to present Hallowed Ground-Women Doctors in War at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, so this is our fundraiser to assist with all the costs involved in getting our show across the world! Edinburgh is the home of The Scottish Women’s Hospitals, founded in WW1 by Doctor Elsie Inglis. Many Australian medical women found their place in these outfits – staffed entirely by women, and they paved the way for the future. One of those women was surgeon Lilian Violet Cooper. Her story, among others of courage and endurance, features in Hallowed Ground. In a way, we are bringing the stories home to Scotland!

Superb writing.. this work is a triumph… not to be missed.
