Saturday 13th April - 8:00pm
Affecting and gripping one man's theatre performance telling the story of 80 year old Peter, a former Spitfire pilot facing a battle as big as his own involvement in the Battle of Britain. .
It is June of the new Millennium.
For eighty year old Peter Walker, ex Battle of Britain pilot, an unexpected new challenge is about to begin. From the comfort of the Silver Birches Retirement Home, he must once again find the resilience, determination and strength to do what must be done.
As he relives past glories, losses, wartime experiences, family memories and the heady days of blue skies and battles, he searches for the answer to the biggest question so far!
Personal, charming, funny and inventive, 'Spitfire Solo' is one man's battle for survival, the second time round!
Blending theatre, music and film in this multi-layered and textured production, Nicholas Collet plays a multitude of characters and recreates the Battle of Britain onstage!
This one man performance has subtle use of projection and recorded sound but it's the the central character of Peter Walker, a retired Spitfire pilot who flew in the Battle of Britain who is completely believable and sympathetic.
Audiences have responded to the highly personal, charming, often funny and inventive way this story is put across and praised its historical accuracy as well as the sensitivity in its treatment of old age.
