Box of Tricks have the casting for their premiere of Daniel Kanaber’s new play Under Three Moons which starts its Autumn tour at Salford’s The Lowry,

The two-hander will feature Darren Kuppan fresh from his year long stint in a number of productions as part of the Leeds Playhouse Ensemble as Paul, and he is joined by former Eastender Kyle Rowe who has also appeared on Coronation Street, as his best buddy Michael.

Spanning half a lifetime, Under Three Moons takes place on three nights across three decades of two friends’ lives. From a school trip to France as teenagers, to a surf shack in their twenties, to Christmas in their thirties, Mike and Paul meet up and talk into the night. From boyhood to manhood to fatherhood, these are the nights they share.

Kanaber tells the story of the two men growing together, a relationship that’s close but often unarticulated. It also explores how that lack of direct expression can become the defining trait in a life and the shifting view of male identity in today’s society from talk of ‘lad culture’ to the ‘metro-sexual’ and now ‘toxic masculinity’. 

Under Three Moons will be directed by Box of Tricks’ Joint Artistic Director and co-founder Adam Quayle and is designed by award-winning designer Katie Scott who did a brilliant job on their award-winning production Narvik.

Under Three Moons will open at The Lowry, Salford from the September 24th – 28th and then tours until the November 2nd to Huddersfield, Liverpool, Crewe, Hull, Leeds, Ormskirk, York, Newcastle, Mold and Whitehaven.
