Isabella - Bedford Players Theatre
November 2 - 18, 2017

It’s August 1914, Canada has entered WWI, Halifax is in a state of preparation, and Isabella is engaged in preparations of her own.  The 19-year-old Scottish lass is approaching her wedding day.  A new country, a new life, we follow her journey through war-time in the harbour city.  And if that’s not enough, before the war ends, Isabella is caught, as thousands of others, in the devastation of the Halifax Explosion.  In a time of enduring stories of resilience in the face of disaster, Isabella’s is one to be remembered! Based on the experiences of Isabella Sudds, with gratitude to her family and in fond memory of Keith Sudds. For a complete schedule of performances visit the website
