The Open Platform: Rose of Nightingale

  • HKRep Black Box (8/F Sheung Wan Civic Centre)
  • 09.12.2022 - 24.12.2022
Humanitarianism transcending class and politics 
A debate on the essence of life 
During the Crimean War, many soldiers died from unhygienic conditions in army hospitals and antiquated medical practice. Known as “The Lady with the Lamp”, Florence Nightingale is determined to introduce reforms, yet her actions incite accusations and betrayals entrapping her in political turmoil outside the battlefield. In the face of external challenges and her own misgivings, can she adhere to her original aspiration and rise to the occasion?
A trial revisits medical practice of that historical period, at the same time opening a debate on the essence of life. When the value of life is classified according to social status and financial well-being, what role can the medical profession play?
