Moon Tiger

A complex tapestry of great subtlety
Daily Telegraph
Very clever: evocative, thought-provoking and hangs on the mind long after it is finished! Literary Review

Compelling, moving and eloquent, one of the great novels of the 20th century is brought to the stage for the first time starring Jane Asher, one of the UK’s most accomplished actresses. We saw her only last year in Charley’s Aunt. She plays Claudia Hampton, a popular historian who is also beautiful – and difficult. Now in her 70s she is plotting her greatest work – a history of the world. As she looks back, she also thinks about her own life and the people who shared it. Against the background of world events, Claudia’s own remarkable story provokes a sharp combination of sadness, shock and amusement.
