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

Assistant Professor Steven Young created this original work for the TWU Drama Program based on the first all female, Russian fighter pilots during WWII.  This production premiered at the TWU Redbud Theatre in November 2013 and had its international premier at the Brighton Fringe Festival in Brighton England.  Students and faculty spent a week in London attending theatre on the West End, museums and exploring the beautiful British culture.  Following their time in London, they spent 2 weeks in Brighton England performing The Night Witches at the Brighton Media Centre as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival, while also experiencing all of the other talented participants at the Festival.
