Edmonton, September 1919

Constable William Nixon is shot and killed in the line of duty. His friend, the brilliant Detective James Campbell, is driven to find the killer. But when the trail leads him far West into Alberta’s burgeoning coal trail he will need the help of Canadian aviation legend Wilfrid “Wop” May to bring a desperate and deadly foe to justice.

Based on the real events surrounding Canada’s very first aerial police pursuit, The Flying Detective is the latest multimedia comedy adventure from Accidental Humour Co. the creators of The McCrackin Trilogy and Cowboy: A Cowboy Story. 

With their trademark mix of cinematic projection and eye-popping stage magic, Accidental Humour Co. will take you on an high flying adventure filled with action, comedy, and heart.
