From the writer of One Man, Two Guvnors comes a hilarious new
play, set in 1940s British summertime.
After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies
home to rejoin his fearless young Hurricane squadron at RAF
Fontwell. Once back on British soil, Jack is shocked to find his
old flame, Lydia, on the base. He sets his sights on winning her
heart, but with turbulence and hilarity never far away, his
advances quickly turn to anarchy.
Thea Sharrock (Me Before You) directs a cast including Caroline
Quentin and Richard Fleeshman in this joyous farce.
