A compelling and thought-provoking play from the pen of William Ivory, Bomber’s Moon is a story that takes a look at war through the eyes of two characters who have suffered its horrors. The show appears at the Trafalgar Studios 2 and it does so on the back of a successful run at the Park Theatre in North East London, with James Bolan stepping into the role of Jimmy and Steve John Shepherd as David.

Matt Aston directs this talented cast and has a fantastic script from William Ivory, who is best known for penning well known work for the screen, and their presence in the West End will ensure plenty of well-earned admiration.

In Bomber’s Moon the character of Jimmy (played by Bolan) is a former gunner for the RAF and he soon meets his newly appointed care assistant in the form of David (played by John Shepherd). The Second World War is long over, but the events that plagued the world during that period still hang over Jimmy, now in old age, as David comes to his side. But the latter has also seen war and so he has his own demons to face as these two minds meet. As audiences will see, it is clear that whilst the physical wars are behind them, those of the mind wage on.

Audiences are most likely to recognise James Bolan from his television work, which has included numerous well known shows from the 1960s (like Z-Cars and The Likely Lads) to the modern day (like New Tricks), though he has also appeared in films such as To Kill a King and others. His presence onstage is likely to be of great interest to those considering picking up theatre tickets.

Bomber’s Moon  runs at the Trafalgar Studios 2.
