TWU Drama Students Perform at the Brighton Fringe Festival

Four female students in WWII pilot outfits perform the play The Night Witches

The Night Witches
by Steven Young
Directed by Dr. Patrick Bynane

Inspired by the female fighter pilots of WWII, TWU's own assistant professor and award-winning playwright Steven Young created the original work The Night Witches for the Redbud stage. The production premiered locally at the TWU Redbud Theatre in November 2013 and internationally at the 2014 Brighton Fringe Festival in Brighton, England. In addition to performing The Night Witches live in front of a festival audience during its one-week run, TWU Drama students spent a week in London attending productions on the West End and exploring the British theatre culture.
