The Night Witches of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment flew in planes made of canvas and wood, and they dropped bombs on Germans every 15 minutes through the night to keep their enemy from sleeping

They were constantly being shuffled and moved to perform new duties - mechanics became navigators, navigators became pilots, and pilots became commanders

Nina and Vera have just finished their training as navigators and are moments away from their first combat mission

As they fight their nerves, the women around them use different means of bolstering their spirits, some more successfully than others

But when the time comes, to the sky they must go

Tonight, however, is different than any night they’ve faced before - their enemy has employed a new tactic taking them completely by surprise

Using movement, song and lyrically styled dialogue, we follow these brave women through one fateful evening during the war


"An atmospheric delight” ~ Front Row Reviewers

Captures the passion, courage and vulnerability of these women” ~ The Salt Lake Tribune
