Europe, 1939. Adolf Hitler’s armies are conquering nation after nation, and in the face of the Nazi threat, Canadian millionaire William Stephenson convinces Churchill and Roosevelt to combine forces in a joint covert effort. Stephenson assembles an elite team of spies, including the unlikeliest of agents: six irrepressible young women. This is their story, a “spy noir musical” that seeks to answer: just who were these bold women and why would they sacrifice their very lives for a war that refused to accept them or recognize them? Catalyst Theatre, creators of the hit musical NEVERMORE, brings another dazzling world premiere to Vertigo Theatre.
Presented in partnership with Inside Out Theatre’s Good Host Program.
