Bomber's Moon Tickets
Direct from a critically acclaimed run at Park Theatre, Bomber's Moon transfers to the West End for a strictly limited run this April and May.
Former RAF gunner Jimmy finds his routine disrupted when sensitive care assistant David arrives – and his cantankerous outlook and colourful language seem to be more than David can handle.
As Jimmy increasingly snaps back to the adrenaline-fuelled terror of his WWII bombing raids, and David’s new found faith is tested to breaking point, both men discover that a lasting peace is not easily won.
With acerbic wit and searing honesty, Bomber's Moon is a bittersweet tour-de-force, full of gritty realism and razor-sharp humour.
James Bolam and Steve John Shepherd star in this extraordinary play from Made In Dagenham screenwriter William Ivory.

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.
