Roy Versus the Red Baron
In April 1918, the most feared and famous fighter pilot ever – The Red Baron was shot down over France. The man credited with ending Baron von Richthofen’s reign of the World War I skies was a Canadian…from Edmonton, Alberta…his name was Roy Brown.
100 years later, Edmonton playwright – Kenneth Brown – brings Roy and The Red Baron together in an Afterlife Officers’ Mess Hall. They relive the famous day that started with Roy just trying to prevent the Baron killing his friend Wop May, also from Edmonton. Through stories, jokes, drink and song these warriors of the sky attempt to reconcile their conflicting views of the world in a live theatre performance that, in the words of one critic, is an “…educational play that has no business being this much fun or heart-wrenching.”
