Under Three Moons, Theatre, TotalNtertainment, Manchester

Box Of Tricks to premiere ‘Under Three Moons’

“Under Three Moons is about a male friendship, two men growing together, a relationship that’s close but often unarticulated. And how that lack of lack of direct expression can become the defining trait in a life.”

From Manchester theatre company Box of Tricks, the producers of the award winning Narvik,  and their recent acclaimed productions of Plastic Figurines and SparkPlug, comes Under Three Moons, Daniel Kanaber‘s new play that exploreshow men relate to each other today, who they are and how they live – and the spaces between.

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 twenties, to Christmas in their thirties, Mike and Paul meet up and talk into the night. From boyhood to manhood to fatherhood, these are the nights they share.

Under Three Moons will open at The Lowry, Salford from the 24-28 September and then tour till the 2 November 2019.

The production is directed by Box of Tricks’ Joint Artistic Director and co-founder Adam Quayle (Plastic Figurines, Box of Tricks) and is designed by award-winning designer Katie Scott (Narvik, Box of Tricks and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse Studio Design Prize). Casting will be announced shortly.

Playwright Daniel Kanaber has had plays performed across London and in festivals in America, Canada and Croatia. His first full-length production, Shiver, ran throughout February 2014 at Watford Playhouse. He was selected by High Tide to be part of their Escalator scheme; an early extract of the play was performed at High Tide Festival 2015. In 2011 his play Heart in Mouth was toured by Box of Tricks.
