by John Murrell Produced by Doreen Page and Laura Garton | Directed by Brenda Worsnop Five Canadian prairie women each struggle to survive the WWII years on the home front. With humour, conflict, and vulnerability, their strength develops by supporting each other through their own war-effort activities. Waiting for the Parade, a hundred memorable comic and dramatic moments which reflect the war itself, won the Floyd S. Chalmers Canadian Play Award for 1980, the first of three Chalmers awards for this playwright.
