Kennedy's Last Flight

An unknown story set on board Air Force One - the plane carrying the body of President Kennedy from Dallas to Washington on November 22nd 1963, following his assassination.

On the flight, Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as the 36th President of the United states under the 25th Amendment, accompanied by his wife, Lady Bird Johnson, and Jackie Kennedy with blood still on her clothes. Both standing next to him. This was Jackie’s idea, so the nation would better accept the transition of power.

Flight crew are split between their grief and loyalty to President Kennedy and their duty to the new President. A man they had considered to be largely a joke. 

 

Johnson is in constant radio communication with both Bobby Kennedy and J. Edgar Hover as both men fear this may be a prelude to a communist attack. Johnson also takes the time to break the news to Kennedy’s mother about her son’s death.

As the flight reaches its destination and Kennedy’s coffin is carried from the plane, Johnson is recorded by his secret service agents refusing to get off the plane until he finds his hat. The secret service agent explains that his hat was lost in Dallas after the motorcade sped away from the assassination.

This is the only time he loses his cool. The reality of his new position dawns on him once he steps off the plane. He was always the butt of the jokes for the Kennedys, a man who would never become king, but now he is and he won’t get off the plane without his hat.

Based on and dramatised from extracts of the official accounts and transcripts from the flight and focusing on Johnson, his wife Lady Bird and Jackie Kennedy, as JFKs coffin ominously holds centre stage. This is the first time this unknown story of President Kennedy's Last Flight will be told live in a theatre.

The Flannan Island Mystery

Written by Amie Petricca-Lear and Tommy Newall

 

December 1900. The Flannan Isles. Three lighthouse keepers are discovered missing. Everything at their post seems to be in order, their beds are made, the kitchen is clean and the lighthouse lamp is polished, fuelled and ready to be lit. But the lamp had not been lit for several days. The relieving keeper finds an overturned chair, a half-eaten supper, and a half-starved canary still in its cage. Two out of three of the keeper’s oil skin jackets were gone, one remained. It was forbidden that all three keepers left their post at any one time, and yet they were all gone, never to be found again.

 

What makes this disappearance a mystery is the circumstances in which the three men vanished. The clocks throughout the lighthouse had stopped at the same time, and uncharacteristic diary entries from the keepers suggested they were experiences something out of the ordinary in the lead up to their disappearance. This evidence, fuelled by the island’s ancient folklore and apparent extra-terrestrial hot spots have encouraged a multitude of conspiracies, all of which have still never been proven.

 

Now 78 years later, three girls, inspired by the mysterious tales that surround Eilean Mor, set to capture on film the conspiracies that have plagued the Flannan Isles. Written by Amie Petricca-Lear, in this mystery thriller, Jen, Izzy and Rosie, an unlikely trio, find themselves trapped within the lighthouse, face to face with what appears to be the eerie residences of the island but are left fighting between what is reality and what could just be sheer paranoia.
