    Phyllis Garvin an Irish QA nurse on the WWII battlefields who lived most of her life in NZ, was honoured with France's highest decoration, the Légion d'Honneur for extreme bravery.

    I’ll Tell You This for Nothing – My Mother the War Hero recounts this tale of war, courage, romance and danger, in a solo performance written and acted by her daughter Kate. Kate was the originator and producer of the highly successful Hens' Teeth Women's Comedy Company that entertained NZ audiences for over 13 years.

    “Don't miss a marvellous show about the wages of love and war from a veteran performer who oozes class.” Five Stars. Adelaide Sunday Mail
