In this new play, voices from the past step forward to recount a vicious influenza that swept across the world in 1918-19. In less than two years, an estimated 500 million people had been infected and 50 million had perished. This is the story of a small region in America - North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad - and how it faced a pandemic that would become known as the Spanish Flu ... and the Blue Death.
