Kate Jason Smith

Irish-born New Zealander, Phyllis JasonSmith, was a QA nurse on the WWII battlefields. Awarded the Legion d’Honneur, her tale of war, courage, romance and danger is brought to life in an acclaimed solo play written and acted by her daughter, Kate JasonSmith.

“This really is a superb piece of writing, and I hope it will go on and on. It needs to be told and retold.” - Pinky Agnew

Or a slightly longer one:
At the age of 88 Phyllis JasonSmith, an Irish woman who lived most of her life in New Zealand, was awarded France’s highest accolade for exceptional courage - the Legion d'Honneur,.

A nurse with the Queen Alexandra Nursing Corps, on D-Day Phyllis was sent to the Front Line in France. During the next months her hospital followed the war through Europe, where she found the love of her life.

Phyllis’s WWII tale of war, courage, romance and danger is brought to life in an acclaimed 70 minute solo performance written and acted by her daughter, Kate JasonSmith.

I’ll Tell You This for Nothing has so many things going for it, it’s hard for a reviewer to know where to start. First up, it’s a tremendous story... a balance between personal experience and the larger historical events through which Phyllis moves... Versatile, skilled and charismatic, Kate JasonSmith’s performance is a mighty achievement in its own right. Tim Stevenson, Theatreview
