Bomber’s Moon is a critically acclaimed new play about hidden memories, dark secrets and the nature of faith. Former RAF gunner Jimmy and his new care assistant, David, have both been through the wars – and both have the scars to prove it. Whilst Jimmy is facing his final battle, against old age and infirmity, David is desperate to build a new future and lay his past to rest.

As Jimmy’s memory increasingly snaps him back to the adrenaline-fuelled terror of his WWII bombing raids, and David’s new found faith is tested to breaking point, both men fight for a lasting peace that’s not easily won. This bittersweet tour-de-force, full of gritty realism and jet black humour, will be the first Belgrade production of the new autumn season.

Written by William Ivory, whose recent successes include the screenplay for the film Made in Dagenham and his TV adaptation of D. H. Lawrence’s Women in Love.

Age recommendation: 14+ (contains very strong language)
