Jacob doesn't know why he's here. He's been at war for 6 years, but nobody will tell him why. The Moon is upstairs, and he wants so desperately to talk to her, but they just won't let him. Will she be his salvation? The Acedian Pirates challenges our understanding of mythology, and forces us to ask vital questions about military occupation.
Set-designer Helen Coyston plays an absolute blinder with the rotting, salt-stained lighthouse and moveable spiral staircase (pubtheatres1.tumblr.com)
The staging and soundscape by Helen Coyston and Simon Slater is beautifully atmospheric and enhances the mysticality and intrigue. (thebardette.co.uk)
Bobby Brook’s production effectively conveys a dystopian society upheld by macho military values and the evocative set design by Helen Coyston a timeless space. (thestage.co.uk)
