Miss Jean Batten

Until October 23rd | Baycourt Community and Arts Centre, Tauranga, Bay of Plenty

Sponsored by Bayleys.

Miss Jean Batten is a one-woman show, set in the VIP suite of the Hotel Australia, Sydney, on the eve of the last and most important leg of her historic flight to New Zealand. The show is a joyous celebration of an independent woman who pursued her ambition with unqualified success and set a record that stood for 44 years.

Jean Batten’s 1936 flight from England to New Zealand in a single engine plane made of wood and fabric, navigating with just a compass and a watch, is one of the extraordinary feats of the last century. Yet when she successfully landed in Auckland, the Mayor greeted her with the words, “Jean you are a very naughty girl, and really I think you want a good spanking for giving us such a terribly anxious time here”.
