In World War II, it wasn’t just men in the sky. The pioneers of the Women Airforce Service Pilots were the first women to fly military aircraft, albeit for noncombat missions, but their toughest battles would be on the ground, as they faced sexual harassment, discrimination and sabotage. Based on the real lives of its four leading women, Censored, by the late local playwright Phylis Ravel, is a play Renaissance Theaterworks has long been hoping to fully produce (after a staged reading featuring actual female veterans in 2013), so expect this to be a powerful season finale for them.
