Born in Kansas, home of the South Wind, in 1897, Amelia Earhart reigned as Queen of the Air until her mysterious disappearance over the Pacific in 1937. In 1932, Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. She was a passionate advocate of equality in a staunchly male world where ‘the air was the only place free of prejudice’ (Bessie Coleman). We are stardust and return to the stars through adversity. An original one-woman show exploring the life and times of an extraordinary and fearless adventurer. ‘Emotionally-charged’ **** (BroadwayBaby.com).
