The World Premiere of 

Lullaby: Inside The Halifax Explosion

by Karen Bassett       Directed by Koumbie

featuring Troy Adams, Mauralea Austin & Lisa Nasson


Lullaby: Inside The Halifax Explosion is a dramatic, educational and emotive experience that explores little-told stories of the events of Dec 6, 1917. 

It is a day that has become synonymous with tales of heroism, survival and of how a community fought against the disaster and the elements. It is a tale of how Canadians emerged from under terrible conditions to help each other.

It is exactly one hundred years after the two ships collided, causing a gigantic and devastating explosion. The story has been told many, many times from a variety of angles.

The play has three diverse characters meeting moments after the explosion and follows them as they comes to terms with, not only the situation they find themselves in, but who they are stranded with.

As the characters share their stories, experiences and history, we the audience experience the tribute to the diverse communities and cultures in Nova Scotia.

Lullaby: Inside The Halifax Explosion is a theatrical event.

It’s a story of survival and growth, of destruction and hope. But, this story is not born of fiction: it happened. It’s historical fact. This is an important celebration of the diversity and cultural fabric of the country.
