Billy Bishop Goes To War
ON THE STUDIO STAGE
April 9 – 26, 2015
By John Gray and Eric Peterson
SPECIAL SATURDAY MATINEE ON APRIL 11 AT 2 PM. There will not be an evening performance on April 11.
From a rowdy, unruly, and impetuous youth to a respectable, venerated veteran, Billy Bishop Goes To War follows a boy’s journey into manhood. Canadian WWI fighter pilot, Billy Bishop, defies all expectations and becomes a top ace — a “ hero in the sky.” With laudable historical accuracy and catchy tunes, this play illustrates Bishop’s intimate thoughts about his odyssey through the turbulent trials and tribulations of war. Rated PG. Sponsored by: John and Peg Slusher. Media Sponsor: WMT-AM.
"Billy Bishop Goes To War is a delightful — and cunningly wrought — work of art." -Brendan Gill, The New Yorker
"An absolute triumph: not since Journey's End reached the stage nearly fifty years ago has there been a piece of theatre which conveys with such searing power what it must have been like to be a fighter and a hero in the First World War." - Nicholas de Jongh, The Guardian
"Billy Bishop is, simply, a sensational evening's entertainment . . . . A surpurb mixture of laconic irony and white-knuckle tale-telling." -Bryan Johnson, The Globe and Mail
