Chocks Away! For this hilarious piece of comedy theatre.
By Brian Mitchell and Joseph Nixon
The story of Alcock and Brown and the first ever non-stop transatlantic flight. A tale of plucky British pioneers – huddled together against the elements in the tiny cockpit of their converted Vickers Vimy biplane, made almost entirely of wood and canvas.
Captain John Alcock, dashing WW1 Fighter pilot, and Lieutenant Arthur Whitten Brown, navigational genius with a gammy leg, huddled together against the elements in the tiny timber and canvas cockpit of their converted Vickers Vimy biplane – talk about winging it!
Writing duo, Brian Mitchell & Joseph Nixon, have turned the story of the race to conquer the skies over the Atlantic into a fast and furious comic tour-de-force. They also were also head sketch writers on Radio 4’s It’s That Jo Caulfield Again and BBC1's Live and Kicking, and share a string of writing credits for the stage.
