About This Show

3Graces Theater Co. presents Flyer, by Kate Aspengren, the third production of the 2004/2005 season of Women’s War Stories. At the height of the Cold War, a woman fights for the right to fly for America in space. Based on the true account of the Mercury 13, the first US female astronaut-testing program in the early 1960s, Flyer tells the story of fictional pilot Fran Douglas. Through her relentless determination and vivid imagination, Fran reveals a rarely mentioned moment in NASA history in a highly theatrical and inventive way. Karen Sommers directs.
