Show Details

Presented by Badapple Theatre

Performance date and time
Saturday, 21st April 2018
7:30 PM

The story follows the inspirational life of Amy Johnson, born in Hull who went on to become one of the world’s most famous aviators when she became the first woman to fly solo from the UK to Australia in 1930. But that’s not the end of her story. During the second World War she had a vital role as one of a team of female pilots working as auxiliary personnel. As well as celebrating her pioneering career breaking records the show reveals her final mysterious wartime journey, and the questions left unanswered about how she met her end. Join Betty and Mabel, the two jovial WAF girls who follow Amy’s final mysterious wartime journey and celebrate her pioneering career. Expect a good dose of Badapple humour, as well as a poignant tribute to Hull’s ‘First Lady of the Air’.

'Poignant soliloquies…the narrative’s precision and subtlety never overplays the obvious pathos at it’s core.' **** The List, Edinburgh
