Holland Homecoming for
NOTE: 3:30pm & 7:30pm show times
Local actress Kate Thomsen, and three of her co-stars well known to local audiences will appear for a special homecoming screening of Pilot Error at the Knickerbocker Theater. Thomsen will be joined by longtime Hope Summer Repertory stars Chip Duford and Susan Ericksen, along with Jennifer Jelsema, a veteran stage and screen actress. Talkbacks, including director Joe Anderson and cinematographer David Darling, will follow the 3:30 and 7:30 shows.
Playing nationally and in London, Brazil and Australia at more than 200 venues this year, Pilot Error has been acclaimed by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel as “a first class ticket.” In this timely drama Thomsen plays the lead role of investigative reporter Nicola Wilson, who is determined to find out why a jet headed from South America to Paris disappeared in the Atlantic, taking her close friend and 211 other passengers with it. How, she wants to know, can a plane just disappear?
As Nicola digs deeper and deeper into this mystery, she puts her job, friends and very livelihood on the line. Even though she knows nothing about aviation, refuses to fly and doesn't speak French, Nicola quickly uncovers astonishing details about the missing flight. Was it preventable? Has it happened before? Could it happen again? And was it PILOT ERROR?
Based on five years of research and interviews with more than 200 pilots and other aviation experts, the script and Rapoport’s forthcoming novel Pilot Error gives audiences an inside look at the fate of pilots unfortunately kept in the dark about failed automation. The story is eerily similar to the 2014 disappearance of Malaysia Air 370.
