‘You know, I’d never have put us down as survivors…but in reality the valiant die first and the losers last the longest.’
Blue Moon is a fast and funny two-hander, where Suzie (Victoria Porter) teaches Matthew (Owen Frost) the rudiments of poker, and the country succumbs to a lupine apocalypse.
Poker, like love, is a game of chance, right? We join the pair at their regular lessons in a London local – punctuated by a growing sense of the collapse of the country beyond. Resisting ever showing their hand to their opponent, they bluff to the last, and when all they have left to gamble with are honesty and vulnerability, they play one final climactic game.
