Using the testimonies of people who witnessed and were inspired by this iconic machine, Johnny Carrington has dramatised the story of Spitfire designer R.J Mitchell and his wife Flo, as told through the eyes of their son, Gordon. But the Spitfire was more than just a machine, it inspired a nation... across all walks of life. To illustrate this ubiquitous appeal, Johnny interviewed a range of people whose lives were touched by this iconic plane; including a lady who witnessed one of the first flights, Battle of Britain aces and a woman whose best friend was killed in the bombings of the Supermarine factory. Fascinating and moving stories of ordinary people for whom the Spitfire has left an extra-ordinary legacy. Donations will be made to the RAF Benevolent Fund and Cancer Research from every copy sold

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It was a privilege to meet R.J. Mitchell's grandchildren and it must be a curious experience in seeing the portrayal of one's own relatives in quite emotive scenes. I must say that if I saw my relatives being shown in such a sensitive way, then I think I would have been very proud of your production. I do hope you can get the play to a wider audience in future - they would be guaranteed a very good evening indeed." Leonard Dickson, Chairman of the Spitfire Society. "The promenade performance concept worked brilliantly. Director Johnny Carrington, with great empathy for the material, showed masterly control in utilising the space, the actors and, at times, the audience...the play was strongly written, tender and witty... " Karen Robson, Southern Daily Echo
