About Dead Equal

The unsung stories of women medics in combat through time are given voice in a new opera directed by Miranda Cromwell.

This pioneering production weaves together gripping testimonies gathered from contemporary servicewomen of the Royal Army Medical Corps with the forgotten true story of nurse Flora Sandes, a British medical volunteer on the Allied front who joined the fighting and won the Serbian Army’s highest medal for valour in World War I.

Written by Lila Palmer with music by Rose Miranda Hall featuring the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

Tickets include admission to Live Equal, a portrait exhibit by acclaimed photographer Wolf James.

Venue:
Army @ The Fringe in association with Summerhall (Venue 210)
89 East Claremont Street
Edinburgh
EH7 4HU

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Dead Equal are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
