About this show

Bernie and Mikey are perched on the edge of adulthood — a sister and brother trapped between the lives they crave and the circumstances they were born into. The children of a working-class Italian family in 1990s Chicago, Mikey is torn between unrequited potential and loyalty to his sister, while Bernie, living with a cognitive disability, longs to find her voice but faces a world unwilling to listen. The world-premiere playwriting debut by Scott Aiello, Bernie and Mikey's Trip to the Moon is a heart-wrenching comedy about one family's coming of age as they reckon with what they're willing to sacrifice to protect one another — and what they're not.
