The Bitch of Balaclava

or The Nightingale Rose

2016: O'Neill Playwriting Conference Finalist

by Patricia Henritze

Moving seamlessly between

the devastation of the Crimean War

and the luxuries of Victorian London,

an imagined Florence Nightingale

challenges the powerful

and acquires the nickname “bitch”

alongside her iconic “lady with the lamp".
