When I walk into a room, in my uniform. There is a look that gets thrown my way. When I walk into a room, in my uniform. It’s as if for a second everything stops.

Jane and Toni are immaculate, iconic, accommodating flight attendants. They’re here for your safety, your comfort and your pleasure. Or so you think. But 30,000 feet below them their seemingly perfect lives are rapidly unravelling.

In the sky, over the sea and in cheap hotel rooms around the world, they can feel the ground shake beneath them. Something is rising up, something which can not be ignored. And it’s calling out for them. If they’re going to survive what’s coming, something needs to change.

Poetic, unpredictable and explosive, Stef Smith’s (Swallow) latest play is a fragmentary and intense journey into female friendship and unearths what happens when you can no longer be the woman people want. Directed by the Royal Exchange’s Associate Artistic Director Bryony Shanahan, this epic elegy to modern women will linger in your thoughts and heart.
