★ ★ ★ ★ “understated virtuosity by James Bolam in this tender and funny two-hander by William Ivory” The Times

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
