Half the Battle at the 2016 Edmonton International Fringe

“The combination of strong acting and muscular writing made this one a winner!”  – David Hudgins, Co-Founder of Electric Company Theatre

Half the Battle is twice the show – Funny and Moving. Don’t miss it!”  – Kathryn Shaw, Artistic Director of Studio 58

When a Canadian pilot and copilot were shot down during the Second World War their tombstones were attached together to symbolize their partnership lasting into the afterlife. Join Adams and Davis as the journey to the other side where they learn a little about death and a lot about each other.

What began in Vancouver at Studio 58 as a final exercise before Owen’s graduation, this two-ish man show has moved back home with him to Edmonton. The show has been revamped, expanded, revised and polished by Owen and Joel for months. Half the Battle is packed with Canadian Military history and existential humour, it’s like Band of Brothers meets Waiting for Godot!
