THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN

‘Wonderfully entertaining….has the makings of a West-End hit.’

The Times

The nail-biting, side-splitting true story of this daredevil flight by pilot Capt. John Alcock and navigator Lt. Arthur Whitten Brown is told in the hit stage play ‘Those Magnificent Men’ by acclaimed writing duo Mitchell & Nixon, In the tiny open cockpit of a converted Vickers biplane, they flew from Newfoundland through dense fog, sleet, snow and hail – sometimes upside down – to Ireland and worldwide celebrity.

To commemorate this centenary, the Foundry Group is once more reviving its highly popular production, starring Radio 4 regular David Mounfield (‘Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show’) and writer/performer Brian Mitchell (‘The Ornate Johnsons’) who endeavor to tell the epic tale with just cardboard, two stools and some left-over props.

So strap yourself in and cry “Chocks away!” for a night of thrills, spills and uproarious comedy.
