A tale of good old fashioned Britishness and World War One fighter pilots is taking place at the Nuffield Theatre this weekend.

Those Magnificent Men is being performed by the New Perspectives Theatre Company and Scamp Theatre tonight, and tomorrow evening.

Having performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe over the summer, the companies are now on tour until November with the production.

The plot features Captain John Alcock, a World War One fighter pilot, and Lieutenant Arthur Whittam Brown, a navigator, in the cockpit of their Vickers Vimy biplane.

Writers Brian Mitchell and Joseph Nixon have turned it into a race across the Atlantic, with only two men and a box of props to fill the stage.

Tickets cost £10 to £18 from Nuffield Theatre, Southampton on (023) 8031 5500 or visit nuffieldtheatre.co.uk.
