The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is proud to be hosting 4 performances of Minefields and Miniskirts ‚Äì A play by Terence O‚ÄôConnell adapted from the book of the same name by Siobhan McHugh. ¬†¬†
Almost a thousand Australian women took part in the conflict in Vietnam ‚Äì the accounts of fifty women directly affected by the war are compressed into five characters: The journalist; the volunteer; the veteran‚Äôs wife; the entertainer; the nurse. Well loved songs from the era punctuate five interwoven monologues to create a performance that will move and entertain you.
