Little Eagles



Rona Munro


Nick Hern Books

“What Munro gives us is not just a tribute to an unsung hero but a fascinating study of Korolyov's growing conflict with the military and political machine...a gripping story” –Guardian

 

“It’s all terrific dramatic material” –Daily Mail

 

“Some speeches are verbal wonders” –Arts Desk

“Wry humour, and charged emotional moments... remind us of the writer who penned both Bold Girls and Iron” –Herald, Scotland

 

Fifty years after Yuri Gagarin's first orbit around the Earth, Little Eagles tells the fascinating and little-known story of Sergei Korolyov, chief designer and unsung hero of the Soviet space program.

 

Under Korolyov's leadership the 'little eagles' of the USSR beat the Americans in the early stages of the space race, achieving a series of firsts, including the first human in space.

 

Rona Munro's gripping play illuminates the life and work of a brilliant engineer who struggled to meet the military demands of his ruthless political masters, whilst devoting as much time as possible to his real passion, exploring outer space.
