KCACTF: Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival New Play
WINNER! Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival New Play Award - 2013
From the winner of the 2013 Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, comes a story about friendship and the complex though essential role of women in wartime. Virginia Hascall has left her home and fiancee to become a Women Airforce Service Pilot, and do her part to help defeat the Axis powers in the Second World War. Through triumph and tragedy, she and her sisters in flight suits learn as much about themselves as they do about airplanes. As the war rages over there, the women form a sisterhood that cannot be broken, and Virginia must make a decision that will change her life forever. With a cast of nine vibrant female characters, Decision Height offers a look into an underrecognized subset of American heros and revises history into herstory.
"...celebrates the depth of friendship and camaraderie." - Dan Smith, fromtheeditr
Decision Height was produced by Hollins University and the Hollins Playwright's Lab and premièred on the Mill Mountain Theatre's Trinkle Stage in Roanoke, VA. The production ran from January 24 - 26, 2014. Ernest Zulia directed.
