    Review: Don't Miss Your Chance To See Bomber's Moon!

    Performed at Trafalgar Studios 2, the intimate 100 seater in the round auditorium is perfect for a production such as this.
     
    Elderly gentleman Jimmy (James Bolam) who lives in his flat with a life that has turned into revolving around his carer's morning visits. One day a new carer arrives replacing Ezekiel a trusted and respected worker who has returned to Africa. David (Steve John Shepherd) has troubles of his own. We soon learn that David is recovering from an attempted suicide brought on by grief over the loss of his father whom he feels responsible for. Jimmy shares grief in a different way, his is survivor's grief evolving from his experiences in numerous bombing raids over Germany during World War Two.

    What unfolds in Bomber's Moon is simply a masterclass in acting skills. James Bolam as Jimmy is truly magnificent. I've followed his career for many years and cannot believe that this national treasure who turns 80 next month can still deliver such a wordy solid performance in a show. Steve John Shepherd as David gives a believable and empathetic performance which shows great strength of characterisation.
     
    Writer William Ivory has written something truly special in this play. It is a witty but immensely intense piece which really lulls you into a false sense of light heartedness and then grabs you and hits you with its potency. The thoughts buzzing through my mind at the end were endless about its main meaning. However what came across to me was that each of them needed each other equally.
     
    It was clear to me that the audience felt the same and I would wholly recommend that you see Bomber's Moon at Trafalgar Studios 2 in its final week. Do not miss this show!
