Theatre: Under Three Moons

Box of Tricks presents Under Three Moons, a new play by Daniel Kanaber.

"I bet when they get older they're going to look back on tonight and say, that was a night that was, by that fire, that was a night."

Mike and Paul are mates. They drink, they smoke, they crack jokes. They kill time.

Spanning half a lifetime, Under Three Moons takes place on three nights across three decades of two friends' lives. From a school trip to France as teenagers, to a surf shack in their 20s, to Christmas in their 30s, Mike and Paul meet up and talk into the night. From boyhood to manhood to fatherhood, these are the nights they share.

A new play about friendship and growing up, Under Three Moons explores how men relate to each other today. Who we are and how we live. And the spaces between.

The production’s two-hander will star Darren Kuppan Around The World In 80 Days, Hamlet, A Christmas Carol, Road, Europe (Leeds Playhouse Ensemble); Guards At The Taj (Bush Theatre), Cymbeline and The Tempest (Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre), East Is East (Trafalgar Studios and UK Tour) and An August Bank Holiday Lark (Northern Broadsides) – as Paul and Kyle Rowe (EastEnders, Coronation Street and Peaky Blinders) as Michael.

It is directed by Box of Tricks’ joint artistic director and co-founder Adam Quayle (Plastic Figurines and Chip Shop Chips, Box of Tricks) and designed by award-winning designer Katie Scott (Narvik and SparkPlug, Box of Tricks, and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Studio Design Prize).
