Here's some pretty swoony reviews about PRAIRIE NURSE:

NNNN - "Prairie Nurse, a terrific new romantic comedy, would make a great TV pilot. Marie Beath Badianโ€™s comedy of errors about two Filipina nurses in 1960s Saskatchewan is funny but also sheds light on a particular kind of Canadian racism" - Jordan Bimm, NOW MAGAZINE

3 STARS - "...a unique achievement in playwrighting" - Karen Fricker, THE TORONTO STAR

3 STARS - "Prairie Nurse is a mix of culture-clashing chaos and offbeat Canadiana" - Brad Wheeler, THE GLOBE AND MAIL 

"SATIRICALLY BRILLIANT" - TORONTOSTAGE.COM
