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.
