Nearing the end of his life, an aged Billy Bishop (Eric Peterson), the legendary WWI flying ace from Owen Sound, recounts the triumphs and horrors of World War One—"the war to end all wars." Through raucous stories, haunting memories, and vibrant song, Bishop traces his journey from Royal Military College troublemaker to the top flying ace of the British Empire.

A story of the human cost of war on a scale the world had never seen before, this is an intimate and powerful portrait of a man that began as a two-man stage play and went on to captivate audiences for over three decades.
