I’m very happy to be bringing this show to Croydon again, home of Croydon Airport where Amy took off on her incredible solo flight to Australia in 1930.

This is a special performance which will be filmed for a mini documentary/ trailer puposes.
If it’s new to you, please come along! Have you seen it and want to come again? Have you got friends who haven’t seen it? Please help me pack the night out by sharing the event with your friends and on your socials.

About the show:
Amy Johnson had her ambitions and she flew at them. Born in the year the Wright Brothers made their first flight she grew up in an age where the romantic heights of flying captured her heart and in 1930 she became 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.
