Chris Thorpe says his one-man show is not about Brexit. That’s a moot point. He’s right in the sense that it’s not about leavers and remainers, adverts on buses or dodgy data harvesting. But he’s wrong – and, of course, he knows he’s wrong – in the sense that Status is a play about the questions of nationhood that the divisive referendum and the impending split from Europe throw up. He also says it’s not about him, although this odyssey of self-discovery does concern a man called Chris who wakes up on the day of the referendum results to find himself alienated from his own country.

With characteristic punchy delivery, Thorpe describes an impulsive journey of escape from the UK on a quest to find the sense of identity that has been stripped from him. In Rachel Chavkin’s rock-solid production backed by Andrzej Goulding’s excellent … [Read more...] about Status review – reflections on a world in flux

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia’s Qantas Airways (QAN.AX) picked Airbus SE (AIR.PA) over Boeing Co (BA.N) as the preferred supplier for jets capable of the world’s longest commercial flights from Sydney to London, dealing the U.S. planemaker its latest setback this year.

REUTERS/David Gray The choice of up to 12 A350-1000 planes fitted with an extra fuel tank for flights of up to 21 hours cements Airbus as the leader in ultra-long haul flying globally at a time when Boeing is battling delays on its rival 777X program and a broader corporate crisis following two deadly 737 MAX crashes. The Qantas flights would begin in the first half of 2023, but remain subject to the airline reaching a pay deal with pilots, who would need to extend their duty times to around 23 hours to account for potential delays and switch between flying the … [Read more...] about Qantas selects Airbus over Boeing for world’s longest flights
