This stunning piece of devised physical theatre uses charming and inventive staging created from battered suitcases, puppets, maps and paper airplanes to captivate its audience. In it they give wings to the female pioneers of aviation and the journeys they took, exploring the freedom they found in flight. Interwoven with this is the moving modern-day account of a young woman’s travels to discover the story of her estranged grandmother - who had fled the constraints of her life in post-war Britain to settle in South Africa. Amelia Earhart once said “the lure of flying is the lure of beauty” and that’s the charm of this piece – it is simply beautiful theatre - transporting you through crowded airports to the majesty of silent skies.
"A little jewel of a show...it loves its audience and in return its audience loves it...it is propelled by real ingenuity in what is one of the most inventive stagings on the Fringe...a brilliant emerging company."
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
