Liberation Days

By David van Belle

"We thought everything would go back to normal. But it didn't"

After years of terror and suffering under German occupation in WWII, the Netherlands has been liberated by Canadian forces. In the days that follow, liberation doesn't seem like freedom. A young Dutch woman and a Canadian soldier create a new world together as a community discovers what remains of their old lives, and what's been lost forever. 

★★★★ It’s powerful, sweet, poignant and often surprisingly funny. For some, the resolution may seem a little too cheery and abrupt. But, like the play itself, the final scenes exude a gentleness that seems undeniably Canadian.
