This award-winning play explores the complex though essential role of women in wartime and the particular relationships of a group of Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) in the Second World War.

Virginia Hascall has left her home and fiance to become a WASP, and do her part to help defeat the Axis powers. 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 an all female cast, "Decision Height" offers a look into an under-recognized subset of American heroes and reveals an important part of our national story.

"Decision Height" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
