Amy Johnson: Last Flight Out

Written and performed by Jenny Lockyer Directed by Vern Griffiths

Born in the year the Wright Brothers made their first flight and into an age where the romantic heights of flying captured her heart, Amy Johnson became the second woman in the world to qualify as a ground engineer and then, in 1930, the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia.

Amy lived her life for adventure and the future of aviation. In January 1941, at just 37 years old, Amy was killed while serving her country on a routine flight for the Air Transport Auxiliary.

In her short time this ‘lone girl flier’ achieved so much and while faced with challenges of all kinds.

We meet Amy in a world of memories, desires, wishes and ambitions. As we find out about her life we start to see how the pieces fit and the tools Amy used to bring her dreams to reality.

There will be a post-show Q&A.
