Bomber's Moon at the Trafalgar Studios 2


Engine House Theatre in association with Park Theatre will present Bomber's Moon, a drama by William Ivory at Trafalgar Studios 2 from 20 April to 23 May, with an official opening on 24 April 2015 following a run at the Park Theatre in 2014.

James Bolam and Steve John Shepherd will star in the play which will be directed at Trafalgar Studios 2 by Matt Aston, with original design by Laura McEwen, original lighting design by James Farncombe, sound design by Damian Coldwell and choreography by Emma Annetts.

"Former RAF gunner Jimmy finds his routine disrupted when sensitive care assistant David arrives and his cantankerous outlook and colourful language seem to be more than David can handle. As Jimmy increasingly snaps back to the adrenaline-fuelled terror of his WWII bombing raids, and David's new found faith is tested to breaking point, both men discover that a lasting peace is not easily won."

Writer William Ivory created the screenplay for the film 'Made In Dagenham'. His television writing credits include 'Minder', 'Common as Muck', 'The Sins', 'Night Flight', 'A Thing Called Love', 'Faith' and the recent hit 'Burton and Taylor'.

James Bolam is best known for his television work, including 'New Tricks', and 'Born and Bred', 'When the Boat Comes In' and 'The Likely Lads' all for the BBC. Steve John Shepherd is best known as Michael Moon in 'EastEnders' and for his breakthrough role as Jo in 'This Life'.

Tickets for the production are now on sale.
