Director Megan Burnett and Alice Lloyd College’s Eagle Theatre Club are proud to present their spring production, Censored on Final Approach, to the campus community on April 3rd, 4th, and 5th at 7:30 PM each night in the Campbell Arts Center. Admission is free and open to the public.
Censored on Final Approach, a play by Phylis Ravel, journeys into a time and place often left out of history books. Set during World War II, the play shines a spotlight on a select number of female pilots who were selected to serve as WASPs, Women Air Service Pilots. They were not embraced by their male counterparts and struggled for acceptance daily. After the war, four WASPs meet to reminisce about their challenges and successes. The conversation soon shifts to a redacted report about a fellow pilot who was killed while trying to land her aircraft. What really happened? Someone knows the truth.
“The performance of this play is dedicated in memory to women veterans near and far who have so graciously blessed this country with their heroic acts of service,” Burnett says.
