An Adaptation of MOONSTONE by Sjón
Adapted from the award-winning Icelandic novel Moonstone, by Sjón, Brokentalkers bring their contemporary theatrical approach to this beautifully evocative period work.
Set in 1918 Moonstone tells the story of a young queer man, Máni Steinn – film fanatic and dreamer – who exists on the fringes of an intolerant society at a moment of profound global transformation.
Set against the backdrop of a global pandemic, war in Europe and growing intolerance of “others” Moonstone draws a line between past and present, exploring the cyclical nature of human history and the role of art as both a comfort and a compass.
