Ensemble 52 is delighted to be involved with the Amy Johnson Festival and will present Three Cheers For Amy on January 5, 2016.
There will be two performances of Three Cheers For Amy in the shadow of the Amy Johnson statue on Prospect Street, Hull, at 1pm and 2.30pm and then on the evening at the Remembering Amy event at Kardomah 94.
Actor Rachel Harris will perform the brief, energetic and enthralling history of Amy Johnson’s life, using elements of the Amy’s own words following her successful solo flight from England to Australia. This affectionate monologue, packed with humour and derring-do, will see the performer interact, at close quarters, with audience members.
The piece, scripted by Ensemble 52’s Dave Windass and directed by the company’s artistic director Andrew Pearson, will make people consider their relationship with the statue and the person it represents.
Performances at Prospect Centre are open to the public. Remembering Amy, an evening of music, film, theatre and spoken word marking the 75th anniversary of the death of Hull’s aviation heroine Amy Johnson, commences at 7.30pm, with performances by Cass Patton, Ruth Getz and Rachel Harris, as well as film screenings of documentary and archive footage, is £7. Tickets are available in person from the venue or via www.hullboxoffice.co.uk
