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 online the second woman in the world to train an 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.

There will be a post-show Q&A.

Content warning: mature themes, mental health, death

£8.00 | 10+

‘As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous insect.’

The Metamorphosis is a new adaptation of Franz Kafka’s classic story of a man whose society causes him to feel so isolated and worthless that he physically transforms into a giant insect. Kafka’s Prague in 1915 was full of confusing bureaucracy, indecipherable regulations and a host of reasons why Gregor should grow to consider himself utterly worthless. Today, our world bustles along with little time or energy to notice those around us and social media bombards us with images of perfect people with perfect lives. 

Following his shocking metamorphosis Gregor finally begins to realise what it means to be human. But is it too late? As his mind adapts to his new life Gregor struggles to hold on to his humanity, and his family begin to undergo their own transformations.

Franz Kafka’s story of a misfit trying to adapt to his busy world is as relevant now as it ever was. This new adaptation of a classic tale of alienation explores the ways modern life conspires to isolate us, and the parts of being human which bring us closer together.
