Beast on the Moon
A neglected chapter of 20th-century history lies behind Beast on the Moon
but its tender tale of a husband and wife gradually learning to love one another is somehow timeless. In 1920s Milwaukee, young Aram greets a mail-order bride from his native Armenia. Aram's attempt to rebuild his lost family is doomed, but an unlikely young stranger may yet help the couple to overcome past traumas and embrace a new world. Inspired by the oft-forgotten Armenian genocide of 1915-18, Richard Kalinoski's play has already touched hearts in 17 countries and 12 tongues, taking over 40 international prizes including Best Play in the leading French and Argentinian theatre awards.
