Monkeys With A Typewriter Theater Company presents The Ace of Suede, a one-man show about World War I fighter pilots, taking place at Shadowbox Theatre on Saturday, November 10, 2018.
Ace of Suede follows the journey of Percy Wainwright – a teenage boy living in Moosehip Ontario in the Year 1914. All is quiet in Percy’s hometown until a Flying Ace arrives to recruit soldiers for the Great War going on in Europe. Waldo Brant, the pilot who comes to visit the town, (also known as “The Ace of Suede”) does more than just convince the local men to enlist. He also steals Percy’s soon-to-be fiance!
Determined to get his woman back, Percy embarks on a trek to the big city of Toronto to hunt down the man who took his gal. Discovering that his rival is, once more, overseas – the young boy lies about his age and enlists in the Air Force. As he undergoes training, he soon finds himself in a deep moral conflict. Waldo is now his brother soldier.
Can he still defend him in battle after everything that’s happened between them?
