Gist: Co-written by Dianne Houston, Marnie Dickens and Stratton, this follows Mary Seacole (Mbatha-Raw), a pioneering Jamaican nurse who became known during the Crimean War for her care of wounded British soldiers. Seacole’s self-sacrifice on the front lines and fierce, adversarial relationship with Florence Nightingale during the war made her famous in her time.
