Moon Fly Unlocked: Zoom Readings (April/May 2020)

We were hoping that the next time we saw you would be with a full production. The global situation regarding Covid-19 means that this will not be feasible until next year at the earliest. Until then we decided to share two new plays over Zoom…

First up was ‘if they call it night’ by Cameron Forbes

David can access parallel universes…but he needs help. He promises Ali that she can reach her happy ever after if she helps him out. The road to perfect reality, however, is a dangerous and uncertain one

Cast: Emma Lynne Harley, Sean Langtree

The following week we presented ‘Kerbs’ by Sean Dennis Langtree

Kerbs is a coming of age story exploring the relationship between Hollie and Luke as they grow up across the road from each other.

From not being allowed to cross the road at ten, to running in different circles at sixteen, and re-connection in their late twenties. 

Kerbs explores grief, friendship, trauma and the need to feel connection to others.

Cast: Lucy Goldie, Alan Mackenzie
