By Keisha Thompson. A Contact and STUN Commission.

A bruk down journey through space and time fuelled by love, fear and Afro-futurism. Keisha communicates with her reclusive dad through books, letters and symbols. But when the letters stop coming she is forced to venture into his world.

Man On The Moon presents a truth-infused narrative that sees the protagonist follow a trail of breadcrumbs in the search for her dad, while tackling themes of cultural displacement, religious confusion, political paranoia and misplaced masculinity.

Winner of the Manchester Theatre Award 2017 for Best Studio Production.
