"Catherine Banks’ new play Downed Hearts opened at Ship’s Company Theatre this weekend. The play is set in 1998 in a small Nova Scotian island community in Peggy’s Cove in the immediate aftermath of the SwissAir 111 disaster, which sadly killed 229 people. It is a play about making sense of the senseless, and hope; when we can’t necessarily find hope, we have to make the hope ourselves."
