A Half Moon and Z-arts co-production for ages 4-9
Written by acclaimed award-winning children’s author Laura Dockrill, Dust uses exciting puppetry and exquisite poetic language to explore a heartfelt story about love, loss, identity and memory. With haunting music by Hugo White of The Maccabees, this striking and emotional new play is a joyous reminder about just how playful the world can be.
“A captivating, imaginative production that uses tiny particles to make big things possible”
“One of the most magnificent sets I have ever seen”
What Once Was Ours
A Zest Theatre and Half Moon co-production for ages 13+
Created against the background of Brexit in 2017, this hard-hitting production for teenagers is now being presented online. Developed in consultation with young people across the country, What Once Was Ours uses their direct words and opinions to explore how politics and national values impact on the complex lives of one family and asks why we’ve become so fearful of anyone who is different from us.
BEST PRODUCTION FOR YOUNG PEOPLE 13+
“Stuns the audience into silence”
“A very powerful voice for those growing up in an uncertain world”
Both productions have closed captioning for d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences and Dust is also available with British Sign Language.
More shows will be added to the Half Moon On Demand collection soon.
