The Fighting Season
Sean Harris Oliver
Sean Harris Oliver's The Fighting Season is a searing investigation into the Afghan War through the eyes of a Canadian field medic (Kristy), an OR surgeon (Terry) and a recovery room nurse (Karine). When all three medical professionals experience a life-changing event in the operating room of the NATO-controlled Role 3 Multinational Medical Unit at Kandahar Airfield, they are sent back to Canada for further evaluation. Through Kristy, Terry and Karine's interwoven monologues we begin to understand the contribution that Canada's medical teams made in Afghanistan, as well as the devastating impact that war has on the ones charged with saving lives.

The Fighting Season is a finalist for the 2019 Governor General's Literary Award for drama.
