  • Bomber’s Moon by Deborah Yarchun

 

  • Cast Breakdown:
    1. Katrin: female (late 20’s, early 30’s)-an American socialite in London during the Blitz. Has a secret and a powerful longing to escape her situation and maybe herself.  A dreamer who loves movies, she puts on roles like people put on a costume.  She says she’s from a long line of “weak women.” Intelligent and vulnerable with an undercurrent of impulsive fierceness. Her humor is surprisingly unladylike. Plays the piano badly.

    2. Lloyd: male (late 20’s, early 30’s) English. From Stepney, London. Working-class and his hands prove it. He has taken pains to soften his Cockney accent in an attempt to satisfy his ambition for a better life but it may become more pronounced during times of stress or high emotion.  Intelligent and easy-going with a wry sense of humor.  Capable of dark moods and intensity. Still waters run deep. 

 

  • Synopsis:
    Set against the London Blitz, two lives are forever changed in the WORLD PREMIERE of this suspenseful romantic drama. September 1940. London. During the London Blitz, Katrin, an American socialite, is propelled onto the streets during an air raid. Seeking shelter in the basement of an abandoned music shop, she meets Lloyd, a displaced, working-class East Ender. Over four charged, complicated nights, Lloyd and Katrin become enmeshed in each other’s lives in ways that will leave them forever changed. An homage to 1940s films with a contemporary twist, Bomber’s Moon is a dark romantic intense two-character drama that explores identity, isolation, and encounters that can alter the course of one’s life.
