Unlimited Theatre in association with Curve Theatre, Leicester presents
The Moon The Moon
Clare Duffy, Jon Spooner and Chris Thorpe
The award winning, internationally acclaimed Unlimited Theatre make ‘mind-blowing stuff’ (The Scotsman) that ‘creates a sense of wonder’ (The Guardian) and this is their new play… terrifying, tender and heartbreakingly optimistic.
A man stands on the edge, at the shoreline. He’s holding a plastic bag that steams with the Christmas dinner he’s made – even though it’s February. It’s going dark. He thinks he’s been driving, alone, for months, living in his camper van. He thinks the Moon has been following him, talking to him. She reminds him of his wife… and he takes a step into the water. And now he’s locked in a cellar, wearing someone else’s pyjamas and he doesn’t know anymore if he’s being looked after or has been kidnapped. And the Moon is still with him, singing to him, desperate for him to join her. It’s time to choose. Stay here and let them heal you. Or go with the Moon, and live.
