Rumour has it that Amy Johnson disappeared over the Thames Estuary on Twelfth Night, 1941.

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?

The truth will be revealed in performances of the show at the Honiton Beehive Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11, including a Saturday Matinee. The show also includes modern musical legend Debbie Harris, as Debbie Harry, singing the magical Blondie hits, such as Heart of Glass, Sunday Girl, Dreaming, Denis Denis, The Tide is High, and Atomic..

John Gregory, the writer of White Wedding, said: "Debbie Harris and her band Bootleg Blondie have just got together with Clem Burke, the original Blondie drummer, to release a new single written by Clem.

"If you cheer loud enough they may just play it!"
