In London’s (Off) West End 2019: Sam Shepard’s Ages of the Moon at The Vaults (Preview)
LONDON – Sam Shepard is one of those playwrights that perfectly captures the spirit and character of America in all its facets, with classics such as True West still performed even today. This October, get ready for yet another Sam Shepard piece, this time playing at The Vaults, as they present Ages of the Moon, in its UK premiere.
Starring Christopher Fairbank (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) and Joseph Marcell of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air fame, Ages of the Moon takes place on a hot summer’s night, deep in the American wilderness, where 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 – as old rivalries flare, their forty-year friendship is put to the test at the barrel of a gun.
This atmospheric new production is directed by award-nominated Alexander Lass, whose recent credits include 46 Beacon (Trafalgar Studios) and No Man’s Land (West End). Don’t miss this chance to catch a Sam Shepard play in the comfort and cosy atmosphere of The Vaults (and a Fresh Prince star) as Ages of the Moon premieres in the UK this October.
Ages of the Moon runs from 17th October to 24th November 2019 at The Vaults. Tickets available here
