Atoning for Joan

aircraftThe play presumes that the two characters are America’s first two women fighter pilots to go into combat and that this is their first combat mission. It explores certain issues for women in war, in this case whether the true challenge is to be the best warrior possible or whether being a warrior at all means playing a very bad man’s game.

History:

The Play was requested by the Washington, DC, Source Theatre for its summer festival. It was one of three very short plays on a theme of Joan of Arc done at the French Embassy.
