A contemporary tale of Bonnie and Clyde
It’s Friday night. Stag Lee is 17, bored and figuring out how to make fast money. Silent Leila is at the all-night superstore feeling stupid and ugly, wishing she lived inside the pages of a celebrity magazine. Suddenly, after a chance meeting and a shocking life-changing event, the duo find themselves heading north in search of refuge. Marooned in an unforgiving landscape, Leila and Lee are forced to hunker down and confront who they really are.
Yellow Moon seamlessly flows from narration to poetry, from imagination to reality, from brutality to hope. Played on a bare stage by four actors, Yellow Moon is a captivating journey of self-discovery with a dark heart.
Yellow Moon will tour 19–30 May in partnership with Regional Arts Victoria and at Geelong Performing Arts Centre on Monday 2 June.
