By the Light of the Moon
We find Lila alone in a hospital for the criminally insane in 1928. Abandoned by her family, society, and her only friend in the asylum, she is forced to face her deepest secrets and the dark reality of the events leading up to her imprisonment. The show presents us with questions about gender, mental health and the institutional suppression of the female voice.
Recently seen in the Hollywood Fringe Festival, off-off Broadway at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre and in the Clapham Fringe Festival.
*Programmed for the 2020 Edinburgh Fringe festival which has now been postponed to 2021
