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.

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
