Description

In February my cousin died in a plane crash. I flew to the funeral. My plane stopped working mid-flight. Good... This is a true story. Not sponsored by Air Canada. Award-winning music-comedy. Part stand-up, part musical parody, part storytelling, Wookey covers US visa immigration issues, men who wink at waitresses, and malfunctioning planes. ***** (StagedoorApp.com). **** (LondonTheatre1.com). **** (TheatreBox.blog). **** (WithinHerWords.co.uk). This five-star, fresh and inventive music-comedy is 'superbly performed' (AYoungerTheatre.com) and promises to make you laugh, cry and build your own miniature plane.
