Join us for this work-in-progress presentation of SWEETWATER. As World War II shakes the nation, sisters Beth and Frankie join with over a thousand women from across the country to answer the call to fly for the US Army Air Forces.

Leaving behind their homes to train in Sweetwater, TX, these brand new Women Airforce Service Pilots soon master 77 different types of planes and become among the first to test the new B-29 bomber–risking their lives every day without the benefit of military status. From the fringes of the history books, Sweetwater brings the WASP and their fight for recognition center stage in an epic story of sacrifice, duty, love, and the joys and costs that come with being female pioneers.
