NIGHT WITCH

HISTORICAL COMEDIC DRAMA  (Solo one-act, 60 minutes)

For three years during WWII, the 588th Night Bomber Regiment of the Soviet Air Force, the first-ever female fighter pilots flew nightly missions against the massive Nazi war machine. They flew in all kinds of weather: rain, snow, sub-zero freezes, with no radar, lights, or parachutes. They flew over 300 sorties, often with ten or more missions per squad every night, dropping bombs on the Nazi front lines. The regiment was staffed entirely of women, including all support staff. They were the one of the most highly decorated elite regiments in Soviet history. And they had the Nazis terrified of them.

One-act. Black box set. One woman 25-55. Must speak Russian naturally.
