Prophecy & Honor DVD

A 2-act stage play written by Joe Moore, this is the riveting true story of US Air Force "founding father" Gen. Billy Mitchell, or Mitchell's unwavering commitment to build US airpower, and his stunning court-martial for defiance of military superiors.

Moore's script uses historically accurate dialogue from the court-martial transcript. The play, with full period costumes, lighting, props and dramatic staging is performed in an enhanced "reader's theatre" format in some scenes, in order to utilize outstanding talent who would not otherwise been available. It permits actors with copious amounts of dialogue to work from pages of the script at their discretion, rather than commit all dialogue to full memorizations.  The Mitchell Gallery of Flight was pleased to assist Mr. Moore with historic information on Gen. Mitchell and his Army uniform.

The play was performed in August 2007 at the Hawaii Theatre in Honolulu, Hawaii, as a benefit for the new Pacific Aviation Museum at Ford Island, Pearl Harbor. The play also celebrates to 60th anniversary of the USAF.
