Half The Battle presented by DIY Theatre

October 31, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm MDT

1943: The world was at war with Germany.

Canadian co-pilots, Adams and Davis, are at war with each other.

Half the Battle tells the story of Adams and Davis, the pilot and flight engineer of a Canadian Avro Lancaster in WWII.

The two men are forced by fate to recount their stories of what brought them to war, why they fight, and most importantly what they left behind. The outspoken Newfoundlander and the by-the-book Albertan, hardly friends in during the war, now find themselves at odds with this new partnership.

Secrets are revealed, and a seemingly impossible friendship discovered.  Half the Battle dives passionately into the often forgotten tales of the Second World War and the harrowing, unspoken accounts of the soldiers and civilians who sacrificed so much.

Written and performed by Owen Bishop.  Directed by Shelby Nicole Reinitz. Co-produced through Sage Theatre’s Stepping Stone program.

Nightly at 7:30pm, weekend matinees at 2:30pm.
