After entering World War II, two female aviator units were formed and more than 1,000 women participated as civilians attached to the U.S. Army Air Forces. In August 1943, they merged into a single group, forming the Women Airforce Service Pilots program. One year later, the WASPs were disbanded due to political pressures and the increasing availability of male pilots. (U.S. Air Force courtesy photo)

“President Roosevelt speaks of every American’s rendezvous with destiny… he was not thinking only of American men but the women who serve – and those women are you.”

Synopsis

During World War II, an elite group of female pilots became pioneers, heroes, and role models. They were the Women Air Force Service Pilots; the first American women to fly military aircraft.

Their biggest battles were fought on the ground; the women struggled daily with sexual harassment, discrimination, and sabotage. Based on real incidents, the play tells the story of four of these young women, and the cost of their commitment and patriotism.

The performance run time is approximately 120 minutes.
