School Production - Missing Time

“We all have this one life to live.  A fleeting shadow amongst all that exists in this vast universe.  We have the ability to accomplish anything, truly anything.  If we use our time wisely.”

What is time and reality?  What is a perfect world?  Sacred Heart College Presents – Missing Time.  A comedy/drama set during World War 2 in 1943. Written by Year 13 students Anna Secker and Georgia Kellett, this production showcases the journey that ex war nurse ‘Margo’ takes into becoming a nun in Norfork convent, England.  The religious based play is contrasted by the characters queries of their faith and interest in time and reality.  How does one truly find themselves in time?
Directed by Anna Secker and Produced by Georgia Kellett.
