Play shows highs and lows of women at war



EVANS HEAD playwright Paul Johnson has brought the wartime trials and tribulations of women stationed at the town's aerodrome to life.

The play, Women With Wings, made its debut yesterday with two of the original WAAAFS in the audience who were having their last reunion.

The first eight women were stationed at Evans Head in 1942.

Another matinee performance of Women With Wings will be held at the Woodburn Evans Head RSL Club on October 9, and 7.30pm shows on October 7, 8 and 14.
