Moonlight / Night School
Directed by Lyndsey Turner and Ed Stambollouian
01 November - 08 December 2018
‘Two luxuriously cast instalments’
‘Pinter Four… has an intriguing obscurity rarely seen on stage.’
The brutality of family life and the subjectivity of memory are explored in the emotionally raw and richly funny Moonlight, directed by Olivier Award winner Lyndsey Turner as a ‘vivid, near delirious piece’ (Financial Times), in which the past haunts the dark, lonely recesses of a dying father’s bedroom.
An East End criminal returns home from prison to find his room has been occupied by a mysterious woman with a secret. Set in the sweaty nightclubs and claustrophobic boarding houses of 1960s London, this is a rare opportunity to see the brilliantly witty and vivid Night School, directed ‘with real style’ (Metro) by the inventive young director, Ed Stambollouian.
Cast includes JESSICA BARDEN, BRÍD BRENNAN, JANIE DEE, ABBIE FINN, ROBERT GLENISTER, ISIS HAINSWORTH, PETER POLYCARPOU, DWANE WALCOTT and AL WEAVER
