Badapple Theatre Company presents ’Amy Johnson’
Badapple Theatre Company is celebrating 20 years on the road and to mark the milestone, it is re-presenting the first show the Company ever toured with. 'Amy Johnson’ will tour nationally starting in Yorkshire, travelling down through the Midlands, Surrey, Gloucestershire and finally Somerset. Artistic Director Kate Bramley’s show follows the inspirational life of Hull aviatrix Amy Johnson, the first woman to fly solo from the UK to Australia. During World War II she had a vital role as one of a team of female pilots working as auxiliary personnel and the play, which features a 2/3 replica bi-plane, explores Amy's final mysterious wartime journey whilst celebrating her pioneering career. Expect a good dose of Badapple humour, as well as a poignant tribute to Hull's 'First Lady of the Air’.
