Well-known writer and performer Michael Veitch presents Flak: true stories from the men who flew in World War II.
Based on his two best-selling books, Flak and Fly, Michael in this vivid solo performance brings to life extraordinary stories of combat in the air in the war of 1939–45. He inhabits the characters and voices of five men and recounts their breathtakingly true and largely untold stories. From stories of death and fear, to tales of humour and comradeship, Michael helps unearth the extraordinary stories of ordinary men living and fighting in extraordinary times
‘There are few storytellers in Australia like Michael Veitch. He puts humanity and wry
observation intothe terrible arithmetic of air warfare. His personal mission to
honour the memory and the memories of the last of a generation who bear
a remarkable witness is a special kind of theatrical experience.’
