Amy Johnson had her ambitions and she flew at them. Born in the year the Wright Brothers made their first flight and into an age where the romantic heights of flying captured her heart she became only the second woman in the world to train and qualify as a ground engineer and then, in 1930,the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia. She 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 she achieved so many great things but this 'lone girl flier' achieved them while faced with challenges of all kinds. We meet Amy in a world of mixed memories, desires, wishes and ambitions and as we find out about her life we can start to see how the pieces fit and the tools Amy used to bring her dreams to reality.
This is a one-woman play which will be performed in the Napier Room of the Clubhouse.
