The story of Alcock and Brown

This week i have been assistant designing for a designer called Helen Davies, I have been developing her original idea and making the scale model of the set.

The play tells the story of 'Alcock and Brown', the first men to complete the continuous transatlantic flight in 1919.

The design is complicated as everything i have made transforms into something else throughout the play. The design is based around the central cockpit, which evolves from a truck carrying all the props and set pieces for the performance, to a stage, to the interior of the plane. The wings are fabric and roll up so sit inside the base of the truck.
The different scenes and set are all achieved using props.
