Award-winning theatre company The Foundry Group (Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks) and BBC4 sketch group The Ornate Johnsons have joined forces for this brand new staging of the hit play 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?

Strap yourself in and cry “Chocks away!” for a night of thrills, spills and uproarious comedy.

Age suitability: Adults and children 7+
