The Flight at Factory Theatre

Take the family to see this amazing new work written and performed by acclaimed theatre artist Beryl Bain, and directed by Marcel Stewart. The Flight will be running at Factory Theatre February 10-18. The Show explores the ground-breaking life of aviation pioneer Bessie Colman, the first African-American woman and the first Native-American to hold an international pilot’s license. The Flight evokes Bessie’s unshakable optimism, her determination, her vision, and the indomitable self confidence that led her to soar above the clouds, reaching ever closer to the sun.

Two Great Productions by Mirvish

The sensational brand-new production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat will play at the Princess of Wales Theatre until February 18th, and is recommended for all ages two and up.

Pressure is based on a remarkable true story centred around D-Day, 1944, and a weather forecast that would determine the fate of 350,000 lives. This critical smash hit is recommended for ages ten and up, and will be running the Royal Alexandra Theatre until March 5th.
