Jermyn Street Theatre presents the world premiere of David Kerby-Kendall's play The Moon is Halfway to Heaven. Directed by Joe Fredericks, it will star Lucas Hare and David Kerby-Kendall.
The Moon is Halfway to Heaven tells the story of lifelong friends Jamie and Paul. A poignant comedy, it begins in 1928 and ends in 2010, when the two friends have reached the grand age of 82. They always meet in their special place. It's here that they play and philosophise; here that Jamie tries to teach Paul that he can have more fun with girls than the Encyclopaedia Britannica; here that they go to war, recover from divorce, get drunk on their retirement; and here that they eventually face their own mortality. As we the audience join them on their journey through the trials and joys of adolescence, adulthood and old age, we and they learn that one never really grows up. This story shows how the love of friendship can some times surpass family ties.
