Flying

a world premiere by Sheila Cowley, dir. Drew Kahl

at Chenango River Theatre

Susan flew military planes in WWII, so men could go and fight. Now she’s been sent home to get back to normal, while the town waits for her local hero husband to come home. Drawn from oral histories and memoirs of women who served as WASPs (Women Air Service Pilots), Flying is an often funny, heartfelt and historically significant new play celebrating the quiet acts of heroism that never earn a medal.
