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 harrowing 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.

Sean is a Canadian playwright, director, performer and filmmaker. His work has appeared throughout Canada and the US in a variety of arts festivals, public readings and theatre productions. His plays have earned numerous distinctions including being nominated for the 2017 Jessie Richardson Theatre for Outstanding New Script for The Fighting Season. Since 2010 Sean has written, performed and directed plays with Hardline Productions, a Vancouver-based theatre production company that he co-founded with Raes Calvert and Genevieve Fleming. The company converted an office space in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver into a 30-seat black box theatre where they produced numerous artistic works, nightclub parties, and workshops for emerging artists. Sean's other theatre scripts include: Eight Seconds, Bright Blue Future, Redpatch, and The Soldier's Wife. Sean is a graduate of Studio 58, and he avidly enjoys playing beer-league softball.

"The Fighting Season is devastating...Oliver builds an empathy with realistic characters who are at times harrowing, horrific and heroic." --Vancouver Presents

"Visceral and moving, The Fighting Season shines as a fascinating study of war medics." --The Review Weekly
