MOONCHILDREN

Genre: Comedy, Drama
BY MICHAEL WELLER, DIRECTED BY LISA SCHMID

Weller says Moonchildren is a description of a puzzle... a group of people who, for one reason or another, are compelled to make a journey by foot across a desert strewn with patches of quicksand. Aware of the nature of the danger, but not of its several locations, they have evolved, prior to the journey, a pattern of travel, a set of warning signals, a complex shorthand to alert each other of possible danger ahead... And in an attempt of sounding less poetic he said On the other hand it's just this old play with a few technical problems but basically straightforward enough and with some good chuckles along the way. 

That pretty much sums it up when I think of the characters and the chunks of their lives we get a brief glimpse into. Just enough so we know what's going on but not too much so in the end we're still left wondering what the hell just happened. And to me that's the beauty in all of Michael Weller's plays, you laugh and cry the entire time and when it's over you're left with this big question mark hovering over your head because he doesn't give you any answers. Just like life, it all is and happens but we don't really know what it's all about.
