5823989Brighton Fringe 2019: Those Magnificent Men
DateSunday 12th May 2019 to Sunday 26th May 2019
Description2019 is the centenary of one of the greatest moments of aviation history and a truly British First - the first ever non-stop flight across the Atlantic. The nail-biting, side-splitting true story of this daredevil flight by Mancunians pilot Capt. John Alcock and navigator Lt. Arthur Whitten Brown is told in the hit stage play Those Magnificent Men by acclaimed writing duo Mitchell & Nixon. In the tiny open cockpit of a converted Vickers biplane, they flew from Newfoundland through dense fog, sleet, snow and hail - sometimes upside down - to Ireland and worldwide celebrity. To commemorate this centenary, the Foundry Group is once more reviving its highly popular production, starring Radio 4 regular David Mounfield ('Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show') and writer/performer Brian Mitchell ('The Ministry of Biscuits') who endeavor to tell the epic tale with just cardboard, two stools and some left-over props. So strap yourself in and cry "Chocks away!" for a night of thrills, spills and uproarious comedy.
