Miss Jean Batten

Miss Jean Batten

The legend that is Jean Batten is fascinating and powerful. Cool, glamorous and utterly fearless, the flight of the great aviatrix from England to New Zealand in a single engine plane made of wood and fabric, navigating with just a compass and a watch, setting a world record that stood for 44 years, is one of the extraordinary feats of the last century.

"Miss Jean Batten" is 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. Fatigued and anxious to keep going, and juggling numerous distractions, last minute attempts are being made to prevent her from flying at all.

New Zealand actor Alex embodies Jean Batten in this solo performance.
