Billy Bishop goes to war : a play by John Gray( Book )

In 2010, the celebrated story of the World War One flying ace -- credited with seventy-two victories and billed as the top pilot in the British Empire -- was revised to frame the original play as a retrospective. Billy Bishop now appears in his later years, reflecting on his wartime exploits and on the business of war and hero making. Bishop's reminiscence is not so much about death and the horror of war as it is about being young and intensely alive. "The prime of life / The best of men," Bishop sings. "It will never be / Like this again."

Canadian acting legend Eric Peterson and award-winning writer/composer John Gray reprise their iconic two-man stage play that has captivated audiences for generations. Costars Eric Peterson and John Gray wrote their now famous stage play Billy Bishop Goes to War back in 1978. More than 30 years after first mounting their celebrated stage production, Peterson says he and musical accompanist Gray have lost none of their ardour for the war hero's tale. In this incarnation, the First World War ace from Owen Sound, Ont., is near the end of his life, recalling a storied battle career as he sits in his pyjamas in a relic-filled attic. As in the 90-minute stage production, Peterson takes on a myriad of characters as Bishop recounts his airborne exploits, while Gray acts as both pianist and narrator

Fresh from a public humiliation and in search of his true calling, former college football star Jack Marshall enlists as bartender and steward aboard Horace Button's vintage private railroad car, the "Pioneer Mother," which is transporting the legendary food writer and social critic across the country in opulent style. Decked out in a white jacket, mixing perfect cocktails, Jack is immersed in a style of living--and dining--he'd assumed was extinct. While striving to appease the eccentric, finicky Horace, and Wanda, the "Pioneer Mother's" enigmatic chef, Jack falls under the spell of Giselle Lebeau, a gorgeous celebrity chef whose designs on him test his self-control and his loyalty. But when tragedy rocks Horace's insulated white-linen world, Jack must take charge of a simmering stew of quirky yet powerful personalities -- all while staying in Wanda's good graces and keeping an eye on their newest passenger
