A thrilling play about the race to be the first woman in space.
Renee Coburg is a gritty, glamorous aviator, the fastest, highest, bravest woman in the world. Jo Green is a determined, brilliant and much younger pilot with her eye on all Renee’s records. They both want to be the first woman in space but there’s only one chair at the top of the rocket.
The Astronaut’s Chair is Rona Munro’s second ‘space’ play following Little Eagles, which is about the space race in Russia.
