Flak – true stories from the men who flew in World War 2
written and performed by
Michael Veitch has an obsession with all things flying, planes specifically, and he especially loves old war planes. So much so he wrote two books about pilots and their stories from World War 2.
Flak, the play, is five of these stories brought to life, in character, by Michael himself.
We meet two Australians, a Welshman, an Englishman and surprisingly a former German pilot. Their stories will amaze you! All stories are of survival but their harrowing tales will leave you awe-inspired by their courage and luck. Michael will make you smile and cry and think. His interwoven narrative is filled with quirky tales of his own youth and his odd obsession with the Battle of Britain.
For anyone who is interested in history, has a family member who served, or just loves a good old-fashioned story Flak will definitely hit the right note.
Meeting standing ovations around Australia – Michael definitely deserves the response he has had to date. Come to The Rex this November and see for yourself just what a skilled character actor and storyteller he is.
Michael Veitch is an actor, author and broadcaster, best known for his roles on the sketch comedy television shows The D-Generation, Fast Forward and Full Frontal, as well as for his books on Second World War aviation and the Bass Strait Islands and numerous critically acclaimed stage roles.
