Coming up May 17 through the 26, Outcry Theatre will be presenting The Old Man and The Old Moon at the Studio Theatre at the Addison Theatre Centre. Outcry Theatre’s website describes the play, “The Old Man has kept his post as the sole caretaker of the moon for as long as he (or his wife, the Old Woman) can remember. When she is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, the Old Man must decide between duty (and routine) and love (and adventure). Luckily for audiences everywhere, he chooses the latter, and what follows is an imaginative sea-faring epic, encompassing apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change.”
The Old Man and the Old Moon is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing. Outcry Youth Theatre will present The Old Man and the Old Moon, with book, music, and lyrics by PigPen Theatre Company. The play is being directed by Outcry Theatre Artistic Director Becca Johnson-Spinos.
