‘Moon Radio’ - a vintage space opera at Townhall Cavan

In a last-ditch attempt to save humanity from itself, Mother Nature brings the moon crashing down to earth. Our only hope of redemption, the Man on the Moon, has just three days to find enough seasonal goodwill and light among the debris of modern life to restore his home to the stars and save us all.

Greeted by fear and scepticism on arrival, our lunar saviour is locked away from humanity; his only contact with humans through his cobbled-together wireless radio. So he turns the dial, searching for humanity’s salvation over the airwaves, and moon radio is born.

Created by Irish Minstrel Larry Beau and award-winning playwright Philip Doherty (The Gonzo Theatre), Moon Radio is a warm but darkly humorous modern fairytale that takes the origin myth of the holiday season and weaves it through an otherworldly production packed with music, spectacle and holiday spirit. It is a vintage space opera for a civilisation that has lost its way, a siren steering humanity’s course away from the rocky shores of cynicism and greed.

Starring Larry Beau, Sorcha Smith, and an interactive moon, along with a host of weird and wonderful characters who tune in throughout the show, and featuring original music by Larry Beau performed with Peter Denton, ‘Moon Radio’ is a timely reminder of why we started celebrating Christmas in the first place.
