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
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).
Age Recommendation: 14+
The script excels in how genuinely personal the reflections upon life seem
The two fine performances, effective setting and strong simple direction make it a compelling and interesting reflection on memories in old age and an enjoyable accessible piece of theatre
Polished and poignant
This production is funny, pleasant, and often just plain charming
Ages of the Moon is complex
There are some almost heartstopping moments, and it contains laughs, too, but the comedy is gentle rather than darkly savage
With its tinge of wry humour, it has plenty to say about the mysteries of male friendship
It's not that it's a bad piece, it's just that it's not much of one
