Tempestuous, inspirational and utterly fearless, Pioneer aviator Jean Batten was the very model of a strong New Zealand woman. Her 1936 flight from England to New Zealand, in a single engine plane made of wood and fabric, navigating with just a compass and a watch, is one of the extraordinary feats of the last century.
Miss Jean Batten, is a solo show, about one of New Zealand’s greatest heroes. Set in the VIP Suite of the Hotel Australia, Sydney, on the eve of the last and most important leg of her historic flight to New Zealand, as last minute attempts are being made by Australian authorities to prevent her from flying at all.
A joyous and powerful celebration of Jean Batten. An adventurer, an aviator and a woman who fought against the odds to secure her place in history.
