Commentaires : This was one of Canada’s most successful and popular shows, telling the life-story of Billy Bishop, the Canadian World War I fighter-pilot, officially credited with 72 victories, making him the top Canadian ace, and possibly the top ace of the British Empire. From his early dare-devil flights he ended up as an Air Marshal, with a VC, a DSO & Bar and a host of other awards and honours. Peterson played 18 different characters, and Gray accompanied on piano and vocals. The production began with a major tour across Canada, then played Washington, Broadway, Los Angeles, the Edinburgh Festival and this season in London. (It went on to have a continuing life and in 1998, Gray and Peterson revised the show, adding one new song and presenting events through the eyes of a much older Bishop recalling his wartime exploits. They again toured the new production across Canada.)
