‘Deserves to be praised to the skies’
This compelling play is told through the eyes and ears of the wireless operator. Confined in the claustrophobic aircraft the young crew struggle to survive. They avoid searchlights and flak; witness fellow airmen blown out of the sky and plunge into zero gravity corkscrew manoeuvres to evade enemy aircraft.
As they unleash their deadly cargo onto the city below, the wireless operator agonises about the real cost of their mission.
The play reveals the triggers to the lifelong legacy that traumatised those airmen who survived.
