Living on the outskirts of Romney Marshes, three teenage girls struggle to find their way forward. Sage has an abhorrence of her body hair, suffers with painful periods and fears she’s a borderline freak. Danni works hard to cultivate the perfect body, but is that the only reason she spends all her time at the gym? Loukia, meanwhile, the new girl from the city arrives with some very strange ideas and the biggest secret of all.
A rites-of-passage story with a supernatural twist, Nine Moons is an all-female production told through nine lunar cycles. This classic tale of lycanthropy and transformation, told through a feminist lens, explores the power of self-acceptance and female solidarity.
The debut play of writer, Nilgün Yusuf, Nine Moons was first performed in two rehearsed readings at The Space Theatre in 2023 and produced by Mrs.C’s Collective as part of the Arts Council funded Big Share.
The Bridge House Theatre is pleased to present the first run of Nine Moons.
