very unusual play. I found it draining. It jumped around a lot, and the
language was disjointed.

Acting was sensational, as it always is.

Not up to Writer's theater's choices.
Still enthralled by Debrah Staples in The Blonde, Brunette and...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“A vivid, blistering account … seared into the mind’s eye by Greig’s powerful descriptive writing.” — Chicago Sun-Times;Highly Recommended


Yellow Moon

Written by David Greig 

Directed by Stuart Carden 

Featuring Ashleigh LaThrop, John Lister, Josh Salt and Karen Janes Woditsch 

This is the ballad of Leila and Lee—a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde who learn that they aren’t alone in the world the night that they discover each other. Their wild ramble across the Scottish highlands in search of an absent father is told in a series of lyrical narratives that will immerse audiences in the action, forging a breathless drama of beauty in the darkness. 

Associate Artistic Director Stuart Carden (Travels With My Aunt, Hesperia) directs this intimate, thrilling bookstore production. 

Running Time: 1 hr. 15 minutes with no intermission
