whatever a moon has always meant

Currently in development with Sodid Svid, whatever a moon has always meant is a monologue written by Salka Gudmundsdottir and directed/co-produced by Graeme Maley.

In 1988, 7 year old Lena is going camping, armed with a treasure map, a fake moustache, her walkman and a stolen Smiths tape. Dad is crying in the driver’s seat. Mum isn’t coming. It’s raining already and the engine’s making an ominous sound. Twenty-five years later, Lena remembers the weekend that changed her understanding of her family and the world of adults. Mixing black humour with a keen sense of the child’s perspective, this monologue explores questions of identity, shame and acceptance.
Coming in 2015.
