Spitfire Dance

A Play About Remembrance




ABOUT THE PLAY

Three Entertainers have been down the song and dance road many times and have been hired for a remembrance evening. However one of them is breaking out with a life changing activity and has to fight to get her new idea across. It’s history in 4/4 time proving that women can do the work of men, even in wartime.

When the first days of the 20th century dawned, the world could not know that it stood on the eve of one of the most revolutionary moments in human history: man’s ability to fly. As the decades wore on, the history of aviation became no less than an intrinsic part of the 20th century - and in ways that were forever indelible. From peace time when the vast oceans of time immemorial suddenly became quickly navigated overhead by air, to wartime when two massive world conflicts evolved a whole new field of battle in the skies, names like Wilbur Wright, Charles Lindbergh, Billy Bishop and Antoine St. Exupery became synonymous with a revolutionary and uncharted way of viewing our world - from the air. Aviation changed forever our understanding of our planet, and our place in it. But there is a lesser known chapter in 20th century aviation history that has not yet had its story told. This new Canadian play aims to change that.

Spitfire Dance, a dramatic musical entertainment in two acts leads theatre audiences onto the much less-travelled road of the courageous and fascinating women who also dared fly the skies when Douglas Bader, Buzz Beurling and Guy Gibson were stealing the headlines. It’s a celebration of the gutsy and talented women who took to the skies and also turned in their finest hour—however uncelebrated it has been until now.
