The Moon of Joan is a classic children’s literature, an illustrated book by Carme Solé Vendrell that we adapted for the theatre in 2007. Since then we have done hundreds of performances of this play. The story that this play tells us continues to inspire its readers and its audience years after the original publication. For us it’s been amazing to share this play for over 10 years and it continues to be part of our repertoire.

Synopsis: The Moon of Joan is a show that tells us about the emotion life of a child who has to save his sick father´s life. Joan is a child who lives on an island with his father, a fisherman. Both are happy but, one stormy night, a blow from the sea takes the father’s health away
