Eat the Moon

First Performance 2000

An original work written by Heather Nimmo

Eat the Moon is a modern day fairytale from one of Australia’s leading theatre writers, Heather Nimmo.

In a suburb somewhere, Jess and Zac dream of visiting the city, but Mum is always working and Dad’s struggling to juggle his career and home duties, so it seems that it is only imagination that will get them there. Is the big city more than just skyscrapers and shops? Jess and Zac pick up where Hansel and Gretel left off in this contemporary take on the classic lost and found adventure story.
