With Glowing Hearts is based on research by Elizabeth Quinlan, associate professor, U of S Department of Sociology, into the lasting impact made by miners’ wives—through their work in women’s auxiliaries in remote mining towns during the mid-20th century—on Canada’s labour landscape. The play is directed by Julia Jamison, assistant professor in the Department of Drama, and features a cast of U of S students and alumni.
Media can arrange to visit live rehearsals of the production from July 25–27. Video from rehearsal is available to media upon request. A video teaser for the show can be viewed online: https://vimeo.com/175416554
