A full-length play


Everyone knows about American icon Amelia Earhart and her doomed final flight. But few know her close friend Jackie Cochran, the hot-tempered, beautiful, ambitious aviatrix who earned more records for speed, distance, and altitude, than any pilot in history.


And even fewer know Jackie's role in Amelia's last flight.


Exploring the intense friendship and rivalry between these two brave pilots, Jinxed shows why the name of one became synonymous with adventure—while the better and far more accomplished flyer was the one who truly disappeared.


A Finalist for the O'Neill National Playwrights Conference and the Winner of Dayton Playhouse FutureFest, Jinxed has also been presented at and developed by the Abingdon Theatre, Penguin Rep, and the Great Plains Theatre Festival.
