Set at an abandoned military base, this site specific historical comedy is a site-specific and interactive piece that treats the audience as newly arrived airmen at the 762nd Air Force Radar Squadron in June 1969 about to begin a 12-month tour of duty in North Truro. The drama includes a vignette focusing on the abduction by extraterrestrials of an airmen stationed there in 1966.

Directed by Daisy Walker and written by playwright and Payomet impresario Kevin Rice, Under the Radar – Induction/Abduction is described by the play's dramaturg, Dan Lombardo, as "Our Town meets Dr. Strangelove.” A fully-staged Actors’ Equity Association production, the show features Robin Bloodworth, Ethan Metz, and Brittany Rolfs.

Under the Radar – Induction/Abduction joins Payomet’s humanities series, “Remembrances of the North Truro Air Force Radar Station,” curated by Dan Lombardo and inspired by the military past of the arts center, located at the Cape Cod National Seashore's Highlands Center. The series includes films, author talks, and Rice’s new play, among other community events.
