The heartstopping story of plucky pioneers Alcock and Brown. Read More >

Those Magnificent Men is the heartstopping story of plucky pioneers Captain John Alcock and Lieutenant Arthur Whitten Brown, a dashing WW1 fighter pilot and his navigational genius, who are huddled together against the elements in the tiny timber and canvas cockpit of their converted Vickers Vimy biplane.

A fast and furious romp through the adventures of these two men, the show is told by just two actors and a crate full of props.
