A new play commemorating the first flight of RJ Mitchell’s Spitfire from Southampton on March 5 2011 is opening at the Museum of Army Flying, Middle Wallop.

Performed by The Maskers Theatre Company, Mitchell’s Wings has been written by Johnny Carrington and tells the story of Mitchell’s dedicated work designing and building the Supermarine Spitfire.

Drawing heavily on testimonies and multi media the play explores the lives of those who were touched by the iconic fighter plane. 

Audiences are promised a “promenade performance” that draws them into the action and offers a unique picture of the huge influence that RJ Mitchell had on innovation in aviation and life in wartime Britain.   

The play will be showing on March 5 and 6 at 7.30pm (Doors open 6.00pm).
