AGES OF THE MOON
BY SAM SHEPARD
In late 2019, Alex directed the long-awaited UK premiere of Sam Shepard's hilarious and poignant late masterpiece Ages of the Moon, starring Christopher Fairbank (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) and Joseph Marcell (The Fresh Prince of Bel Air).
On a hot summer's night, deep in the American wilderness, Byron and Ames are reunited by mutual desolation. By the fading light of an eclipsing moon, the pair reflect on love and life over a bottle of whiskey - and as old rivalries flare, their forty-year friendship is put to the test at the barrel of a gun.
The production ran from Thursday 17th October - Sunday 24th November 2019 at The Vaults, Launcelot Street, Lambeth, London, SE1 7AD.
