)-- About The Play
Juniper is looking for love, Robert is trying to avoid it, Ollie doesn't know what it is, and Meg has resigned herself to never having it. As these four people move through a July day in London, they orbit each other, unaware that they are hurtling towards one moment that could devastate them all. Alice Birch's full length debut work was a finalist in the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
"one of the most exciting young playwrights in British theatre. Her work is witty and frightening by turns..." -Simon Stephens, Playwright
"a meticulously written play that slowly turns you inside out." -The Guardian
"Many Moons is undeniably a brave piece, one that commands your attention from the moment its four deceptively simple characters begin talking to its wholly despairing ending. Birch is a bright young talent to be watched…" -The Telegraph
