As the 20th century dawns and the Wild West is tamed, there is only one frontier left - the sky. Two small-town bicycle repairmen take their dreams of flight to the desolate sands of Kitty Hawk. In just four years of tireless experimentation and perseverance they will change the world forever. This intimate but epic adventure tells the inspiring story of Wilbur and Orville Wright, the two brothers who taught the world to fly. The Wright Brothers reunites the winning team behind the hugely popular moon-landing epic One Small Step, which enthralled audiences in 20 countries.
"It’s hard to image a play fuelled by a more profound and spellbinding sense of shear wonder." Scotsman on One Small Step
