Book and lyrics by Allen Desnoyers
A Canadiana Musical Theatre production
A rich, heartfelt musical featuring Celtic music and swing music and packed with powerful vignettes and characters.
In late summer of 1939, refugees and immigrants are fleeing Europe to East Coast Canada. Soon, Pier 21 will launch half a million soldiers on their way to fight Nazi Germany. As CBC broadcasts morale-boosting programs to troops, soldiers overseas meet their future brides. After the war the Pier welcomes War Brides, wounded soldiers, and a new generation of immigrants and displaced people fleeing the devastation left behind.
