Tempting Providence

Apr 26th-May 5th


Tempting Providence is a simple and often humorous tale that recounts the true story of nurse Myra Bennett who left her home in England in 1921 for Newfoundland to serve a community in great need on the remote Great Northern Peninsula. It follows the trials and joys of this courageous woman who became known as the Florence Nightingale of the North and a true Newfoundland legend.
