A virtual world premiere!
In this new play, voices from the past step forward to recount a vicious influenza that swept across the world in 1918-19. In less than two years, an estimated 500 million people had been infected and 50 million had perished. This is the story of a small region in America - North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad - and how it faced a pandemic that would become known as the Spanish Flu … and the Blue Death.
Tune in at 7:30pm on November 20 & 21 on The Little Theatre's Facebook Page, YouTube channel, or on this webpage. (Available to watch through Sunday, November 29.)
