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. Many Moons is the latest play by new playwright Alice Birch, opening at groundbreaking Theatre 503 in summer 2011.
“…an absolutely incredible script. It's rare to see a play and be so sure that it will stay with you for a while but Many Moons is precisely that kind of play. An incredibly tense, dense and tight play…. Beautiful, and slightly terrifying.”
British Theatre Guide
"extraordinary…. [Birch is] talent to watch…a witty yet poetic play of great maturity and dramatic intrigue… as excellent a piece of new writing as you will see this year”
“This is a meticulously written play… that slowly turns you inside out.” – The Guardian
“Birch’s writing is poetic and rich with imagery... it’s a confident and exciting piece of writing, and as a debut, as a marker of things to come, it’s one to remember.” – Exeunt Magazine
