Ahead of Mates founder Terri Paddock’s post-show Q&A tonight and next Wednesday’s press performance, we’ve got first-look photos for the posthumous UK premiere of Sam Shepard’s Ages of the Moon. Check out the full gallery – and then get booking!
On a hot summer’s night, deep in the American wilderness, Byron and Ames are reunited by mutual desolation. By the fading light of an eclipsing moon, the pair reflect on love and life over a bottle of whiskey – and as old rivalries flare, their forty-year friendship is put to the test at the barrel of a gun.
Joseph Marcell and Christopher Fairbank play ‘Byron’ and ‘Ames’. Ages of the Moon has set and costume design by Holly Pigott and is produced by Debbie Hicks.
Sam Shepard‘s play premiered in Dublin in 2009, starring Stephen Rea and Sean McGinley, and then transferred to New York the following year, with several subsequent productions in North America and Canada.
