NT Live: Jack Absolute Flies Again Image

A riotous new comedy. 

From the writer of One Man, Two Guvnors comes a hilarious new play, set in 1940s British summertime. 

After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies home to rejoin his fearless young Hurricane squadron at RAF Fontwell. Once back on British soil, Jack is shocked to find his old flame, Lydia, on the base. He sets his sights on winning her heart, but with turbulence and hilarity never far away, his advances quickly turn to anarchy. 

Staged to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this joyous farce is directed by Thea Sharrock (Me Before You) and features a cast including Caroline Quentin and Richard Fleeshman.

"The funniest show on the planet."
Daily Mail on One Man, Two Guvnors
