Inspired by interviews with female critical care physicians on the frontlines of the COVID pandemic, and Ernest Hemingway’s groundbreaking World War I novel set against the backdrop of a pandemic nearly 100 years earlier, “In Our Time/Stories from the Front Lines of the Medical Fields” weaves Hemingway’s In Our Time with first hand accounts of women ICU doctors to create a moving, poetic account of 2 eras echoing with parallel themes of loss, grief and alienation. Theatrically adventurous and surprising, characters and stories layer through time and stage space as they reach for meaning and connection in the spaces between words and worlds.
