Irish-born Phyllis was one of only two New Zealand women ever to have been honoured with France's highest decoration, the L├ęgion d'Honneur, for extreme bravery in WWII. She spoke of bombs screaming overhead, crawling around the hospital tents on their knees, the constant stream of wounded and dying soldiers. Not all her stories were tragic, most had a lighter side, a twist, a punchline. Award-winning director and actor Kate JasonSmith brings to life the dramatic and often humorous tale of her mother's life in this acclaimed show about war, courage and romance.
