‘You know, I’d never have put us down as survivors...but in reality the valiant die first and the losers last the longest.’
 

Blue Moon is a fast and funny two-hander, where Suzie teaches Matthew the rudiments of poker, and the country succumbs to a lupine apocalypse. It is a comedy, a horror, a political satire, an oblique look at the lives of modern Londoners, and – overwhelmingly – a love story.
 

In a desperate attempt to win Kate’s heart, Matthew (21) has wangled himself an invitation to her poker night. Poker, like love, is a game of chance, right? He gives it a go online, to get the hang of it, and is beaten hollow by Suzie (43) in a casino poker championship. Undeterred, he decides to engage her services as his tutor.
 

We see them at their regular lessons – punctuated by a growing sense of the collapse of the country beyond. She teaches, he studies, she attacks, he defends, they drink, eat crisps, he bids, she raises, he quits, they talk. Learning both the rules and the psychological ploys of the game, Matthew also learns a lot about Suzie, and she about him.
 

Resisting ever showing their hand to their opponent, they bluff to the last, and when all they have left to gamble with are honesty and vulnerability, they play one final climactic game.


 

We will be performing at the Bread and Roses Theatre in Clapham 9th – 13th Jan at 7:30pm and then transferring down to our very own Crown Inn 15th – 18th Jan at 8pm.


 

Please book early as due to the staging tables will be limited for this performance. As ever preference will be given to those choosing to eat at the pub, and then in order of booking.


 

Praise for the Playwright

“laugh-out-loud funny... an excellent script from Maud Dromgoole.”

“Maud Dromgoole’s script is witty and dark with plenty of depth.”


 

Praise for the lead actress

“It is Karen, and Porter’s stunning playing of her that dominates. A performance of white hot fury”

“A performance of startling intensity and grace. Every twitch of the superb Porter is imbued with humanity and humour”

“A captivating one-woman show, fresh and funny. Porter had me on the edge of my seat”

“The high point of the evening. Porter’s performance totally sets the play”


 

We are still casting the male lead but are very excited by the many applications we have received, and will bring you more details as we have them. Watch this space!
