Mitchell and Nixon’s thrilling, hilarious hit play about the first ever non-stop transatlantic flight. British aviation pioneers Alcock and Brown flew from Newfoundland through dense fog, snow and hail in the tiny open cockpit of a converted Vickers biplane, to Ireland and worldwide fame.

To celebrate the flight’s centenary, award-winning company The Foundry Group returns with this much-loved production starring David Mounfield (‘Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show’ R4) and Brian Mitchell (‘The Ministry of Biscuits’).
