Written by Order of Canada recipient John Gray with former Corner Gas star Eric Peterson, the play has been the recipient of multiple awards since it premiered in 1978 and is one of Canada’s most successful musical dramas of all time. It originally premiered in Vancouver in 1973.

Billy Bishop Goes to War continues to re‐create this true war‐time story for new generations of theatre audiences as it attempts to reconcile the horrors of battle with the ecstasy of flying, in the process capturing the complex but indomitable human spirit of its hero. Born in Owen Sound in 1894, William Avery ‘Billy’ Bishop was officially credited with 72 victorious flying missions, making him the top Canadian ace in the First World War.

The play stars actors Damon Calderwood and Gordon Roberts, co‐founders of Ace Productions, a British Columbia‐based, small‐cast, touring musical theatre company. Calderwood and Roberts have performed this piece across Canada over the last 9 years.
