The legend that is Jean Batten is fascinating and powerful. Cool, glamorous and utterly fearless, the great aviatrix's flight from England to New Zealand in a single engine plane made of wood and fabric, navigating with just a compass and a watch, is one of the extraordinary feats of the last century.
In this solo production, starring Alex Ellis and written by Phil Ormsby, we meet Jean in 1936 as she waits for clear weather. Stuck in the luxury of the Hotel Australia, desperate to carry on her flight, Jean must handle the pressure, fear, uncertainties and prejudices that lie ahead.
A joyous and powerful celebration of a woman who fought against the odds to secure her place in history.
"Alex Ellis gives us an utterly engaging, thought-provoking performance as Miss Jean Batten" (Leigh Sykes, Theatreview)
