The Last Flight of Amy Johnson
By Ade Morris

Wed 21 Oct 2020 - Sat 21 Nov 2020

We are delighted to announce that this autumn we will be presenting a limited season of socially distanced performances inside our auditorium. 

5 May 1930. Amy Johnson has a dream, but just how far will her dream take her?

As the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia, Amy’s career reached new heights, but the outbreak of the Second World War changed everything, and she finds herself facing her greatest challenge yet. Driven by the need to escape from one life to another, follow Amy’s journey from humble beginnings to become one of Britain’s most influential female aviators.

A powerful play about one of the most inspirational women of the twentieth century, Lone Flyer received its premiere at The Watermill nearly 20 years ago.

Tickets £25 to £23 

Age guidance 8+

Audio Described performance: Saturday 7 November at 2.30pm. To reserve a headset for the performance and to book your tickets, please contact the box office on 01635 46044.

Keeping you safe at The Watermill

Lone Flyer is part of The Watermill Theatre's autumn 2020 reopening season featuring shows with smaller cast sizes, reduced capacity inside the auditorium and socially distanced seating to enable you to get back to watching the very best live theatre.

Audience members are required to wear face masks (unless medically exempt or children under 11) when moving around the Watermill site, including in the bar and restaurant and at all times in the auditorium. Masks do not need to be worn when eating or drinking.
