Beast on the Moon

March 1 - 24, 2013

by Richard Kalinoski

Set in Milwaukee, circa 1921, this award-winning play follows two survivors of the Armenian holocaust. Aram has relocated to the United States, determined to replace the family he lost. He sends for a mail-order bride and a young girl, Seta, arrives full of hope and love. When Aram's plans don't go as expected, Seta must help her husband discover that life is worth living and not just surviving.

"...funny, poetic, compassionate and wise. ...one of the most emotionally powerful plays I have seen in a long time." -pamphletpress.org
