Against a background of World War I, A Red Eagle Falling tells
the story of one man's loneliness and torment as he confronts the truths of war. Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron, after
receiving a head wound begins to see and speak with the images of the pilots he has shot down. Soon his tiny barracks is filled
with the spirits of British pilots, haunting the once unemotional Baron. Only with intervention from his love, Katie, can
he begin to focus on his duties and continue to fly.
A Red Eagle Falling was first
produced in New York City at the Writer's Theatre by Project III Ensemble. It has been produced 35 times throughout the US,
Canada, and Germany. The play has won a Delauney Playwriting Award for Best Drama.
