Bomber’s Moon

written by Deborah Yarchun

SEPT 28 – OCT 21

Set against the London Blitz, two lives are forever changed in the WORLD PREMIERE of this intense and witty romantic drama. Everything becomes clear during a bomber’s moon. 

After a devastating discovery, Katrin, an American socialite, seeks shelter in the basement of an abandoned music shop during an air raid.  There she meets Lloyd, a displaced, working-class East Ender. Over four charged, complicated nights sheltering in the music shop, Lloyd and Katrin find themselves connected in ways they never imagined.
