AGES OF THE MOON

By Sam Shepard

 

Sam Shepard's poignant and intensely gripping play Ages of the Moon receives its long-awaited UK premiere, starring Christopher Fairbank (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) and Joseph Marcell (The Fresh Prince of Bel Air).

On a hot summer's night, deep in the American wilderness, Byron and Ames are reunited by mutual desolation. By the fading light of an eclipsing moon, the pair reflect on love and life over a bottle of whiskey - and as old rivalries flare, their forty-year friendship is put to the test at the barrel of a gun. 

"Definitely see this play" - New York Times 

**** 'Alexander Lass' finely tuned production has plenty to say about the mysteries of male friendship'
The Times

'...heartstopping moments, and laughs, too'
The Guardian
 

****’Polished and poignant’  The Stage 

 

**** 'the two fine performances... a compelling and interesting reflection on memories in old age' West End Wilma

'There's a wonderfully elegiac ebb and flow to the dialogue... the production does the play proud'
What's On Stage

 

This atmospheric new production is directed by award-nominated Alexander Lass, whose recent credits include 46 Beacon (Trafalgar Studios) and No Man's Land (West End).
