Sheila Cowley’s play explores the lives of women flyers in the aftermath of World War II. Drawn from oral histories and memoirs of women who served in the WASP program in WWII, Flying explores the aftermath of war and the quiet, daily acts of heroism that never earn a medal.

Synopsis: Susan flew military planes during the war, so men could go and fight. Now she’s home, trying to get back to normal. Meanwhile, the town waits for her local hero husband to return. As the town tells glory tales of Bob, Susan tries to put away her memories of flying. She uses Bob’s legend to keep his family airfield going, so when Fisher, his wounded gunner, shows up looking for a job, she’s forced to hire him. As the play progresses, the stories the town tells reveal Susan through what they leave out.
