“I bet when they get older they’re going to look back on tonight and say, that was a night that was, by that fire, that was a night.”
Mike and Paul are mates. They drink, they smoke, they crack jokes. They kill time.
Spanning half a lifetime, Under Three Moons takes place on three nights across three decades of two friends’ lives. From a school trip to France as teenagers, to a surf shack in their twenties, to Christmas in their thirties, Mike and Paul meet up and talk into the night. From boyhood to manhood to fatherhood, these are the nights they share.
A new play about friendship and growing up, Under Three Moons explores how men relate to each other today. Who we are and how we live. And the spaces between.
