Overview

“It’s not a bit like a car or a boat, you know.”

Amy Johnson has a dream, but just how far will her dream take her? As the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia, Amy’s career reached new heights, but the outbreak of the Second World War changes everything, and she faces her greatest challenge yet. Escaping one life and aiming for the stars, Amy comes from humble beginnings to become one of Britain’s legendary aviators. A powerful play about an inspirational woman.

Lucy Betts’ critically acclaimed production is filled with stirring music and swirling movement. It was first seen at the Watermill Theatre last year. Lucy Betts and Ade Morris are both Associates at the Watermill. Originally designed by Isobel Nicolson.
