Half Moon presents
By Courttia Newland
Directed by Angela Michaels

In an abandoned building a group of young people are forced to confront the very thing that scares them most. Themselves. The mysterious and complicated culture of inner-city youth is exploded in this gripping new play, which breathes with a raw poetic language and a contemporary soundtrack.

Part street vernacular, part theatrical tradition, at times harrowing and at others searingly true - this is a play about the world of the teenage mind. Novelist and writer Courttia Newland deploys an abstract, poetic narrative style to invigorate this physical and fast paced production.  

"Director Angela Michaels skilfully maintains the temperature at just below boiling point." The Stage
"This elusive new short appeals by keepin' it dreamlike" Time Out

“A vibrant piece of new writing” **** Afridiziak 
“Newland reinvents the genre simply through his use of language... One has a sense here of a writer willing to take risks.”
