The Governor General Award-winning play Billy Bishop Goes to War is the compelling story of the Canadian WWI fighter pilot. The hero’s action-packed life took him from the trenches of combat, up to the skies and into the recesses of his soul. Witty, passionate and at times heartbroken, Billy Bishop struggles to reconcile the ecstasy of aerial exploits with the horrors of war.
Billy Bishop Goes to War is being performed in B.C. until February 5 at the Western Canada Theatre in Kamloops and on February 14 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, starring Ryan Biel and Zach Gray, and also from February 3 – March 6 at the Segal Centre for the Performing Arts in Montreal, starring the original cast of Eric Peterson and John MacLachlan Gray.
