A production of original song and storytelling.

Florence Nightingale was a campaigner and reformer whose pioneering use of statistics called for government accountability and equal access to healthcare for all. This one-woman-performance of original song and storytelling shines a light on lesser known aspects of Florence Nightingale’s life and work, to question why this remarkable woman and her many achievements are so often overlooked.

Florence Nightingale spent less than two years as a nurse in the Crimea, yet she lived to the age of ninety. She spent decades campaigning for social reform, advocating equal access to healthcare for all and she became an expert in wide ranging areas such as hospital design, land irrigation and postal services for soldiers, in order to advance her causes. 

This performance by Hampshire based songwriter and performer Louise Jordan celebrates Florence as a pioneering statistician and connects Florence’s work in the 19th century with the issues we continue to face today.
