Alderney Landing Theatre, Dartmouth Waterfront, is proud to be presenting the World Premiere of a new stage play written and directed by award winning actor, Anthony Sherwood. “The Colour of Courage” is inspired by the diary of Rev. Captain William Andrew White II, the only Black Chaplin serving in the British Military at the time. Rev. White served with the No. 2 Construction Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, which was a Black battalion, whose members came from all over Canada, USA and the Caribbean. This year, 2016, marks the 100th Anniversary of the No. 2 Construction Battalion, Canada’s all-black military unit which was formed right here in Nova Scotia.
