Bomber's Moon

After a devastating discovery during the first week of the London Blitz, Katrin, an American socialite, is propelled onto the streets during the blackout. Caught in an air raid, she seeks shelter in the basement of an abandoned music shop. She’s followed by Lloyd, a displaced, working-class East Ender. Over four charged, complicated nights sheltering together in the music shop, Lloyd and Katrin become enmeshed in each other’s lives.

    Wow, I love this play. The danger of the outside world is palpable in every moment, and the relationship between Katrin and Lloyd aches of people searching for an escape anywhere they can find it. These characters are complicated and delicate, enigmatic and razor sharp, and the sexual tension between them feels simultaneously tender and treacherous. This is a high-wire two-hander with stakes, wit, and that deep human nameless thing inside all of us.
