Open: 08/23/14- Close: 08/26/14 Censored On Final Approach - The Unknown Stories Of The Women Airforce Service Pilots
"Censored on Final Approach" by Phylis Ravel is the story of four WASP (Women Air Force Service Pilots), a group of roughly one thousand women hired by the United States Army Air Force during WWII to fly military aircrafts and tow targets for live anti-aircraft artillery practice, thereby freeing male pilots for combat missions.

"Censored on Final Approach" is a story of strength, courage, identity, and the close-knit friendships formed during a very important period in American history. These women flew a combined total of over 600 million miles in every type of military aircraft and paved the way for future generations of female pilots, both military and civilian. This play continues IVP's tradition of producing works that underscore the pivotal but often overlooked roles women have played throughout history.
