Fresh from a highly-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, and four nominations in the Broadway World Awards, Rebecca Crookshank’s Whiskey Tango Foxtrot comes to Derby Theatre this weekend.
Based on Crookshank’s time in the Royal Air Force serving Queen and country, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot charts her journey from basic training to the Falkland Islands.
From feeling low to flying high this is a deeply moving, hilarious and heart-warming adventure.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot highlights the challenges women face in being defined by their gender and celebrates the wonderful women who forged a path for others.
Crookshank’s anecdotes about her time in the Air Force mix the serious and the comic to great effect interspersed with her own video footage to really emphasise the reality at the heart of her story.
She was recently interviewed on Channel 4 News about the sexual harassment she faced in the RAF.

The show is at Derby Theatre on Saturday, March 5 at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £10 and £7 on 01332 593939 or www.derbytheatre.co.uk
