But did she?

In White Wedding, which is a musical comedy, the story suggests a much happier ending for the most famous woman of her era.

The production tells the tale of accidental time travel by a group of modern day people. They arrive in the Blitz, in 1941, where famous aviator Amy Johnson is about to disappear forever.

All ends well with a White Wedding, but will the time travellers ever get back to their own time zone?
