Same Old Moon: A Play
Characters: 3 male, 5 female to play 10 male, 11 female
This charming autobiographical play from London's West End creates scenes from the life of aspiring writer Brenda Barnes. From age nine into her forties, she is seen through the eyes of her eccentric and sometimes fiery family, particularly her willfully self descriptive father and her put upon and sometimes hot tempered mum. Hilarious scrapes erupt when Brenda's imagination and intelligence bump against the restrictions of Irish and English customs and society. The play is a captivating and not uncritical look at family life that features some wonderful roles.
