Wa nurse 191203 nightingale

Florence and her nurses experience the "Kingdom of Hell" in a Crimean War hospital.

In celebration of Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday, HEARTS: Health & Arts is pleased to announce the Bicentennial Tour 2020 of:

Nightingale: A Musical Regarding the Life & Passion of Miss Florence Nightingale
by Pamela Gerke
directed by Jon Lutyens, music direction by Sam Peters

Sponsored by Washington State Nurses Association
and SEIU Healthcare 1199NW

The show highlights the life and passion of one of the principle founders of the nursing profession, an amazing woman and a powerful role model for today’s nurses. Nightingale struggled against society’s dictates in order to follow her heart. She spoke truth to power, caught the old guard in the act of being obsolete and thereby changed the world. This musical reveals issues that continue to challenge modern nurses, such as hierarchy, sexism and bureaucratic obstacles that limit nurses’ mission to heal and tend.
