Event description

Description

‘Wonderfully entertaining….has the makings of a West-End hit.’ – The Times

‘An up, up and away fringe hit! Spiffing perfection.’ – The Daily Telegraph

A fabulous theatre evening with a Fish and Chips supper!

Maypole Airfield is proud to present the thrilling true story of the first ever non-stop transatlantic flight, as told by acclaimed writing duo Mitchell & Nixon in this side-splitting new production. This hit play is about British pioneering aviators Capt John Alcock and Lt Arthur Whitten Brown and their daredevil dash across the Atlantic in the tiny open cockpit of a converted Vickers biplane. In this glorified kite they flew from Newfoundland through dense fog, sleet, snow and hail – sometimes upside down – to Ireland and worldwide celebrity.

What made them do it?
Why have they been forgotten?
And how on earth can a couple of actors tell it all with just cardboard, two chairs and some left-over props?

A top-hole cast, including ‘Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show’ and ‘This Is Jinsyregular David Mounfield, guarantees the show takes flight. So strap yourself in and cry “Chocks away!” for a night of thrills, spills and uproarious comedy.

Suitable for aviators and non-aviators alike. Enjoy a fabulous evening plus a truly great Fish and Chips supper out of the paper, as it was meant to be!
