BEAST ON THE MOON was produced at the Humana Festival at the Actors Theater of Louisville in 1995. Its prize-winning career on international stages includes productions in 17 countries and 12 languages. In 2001, the play won five Molière awards. (That's French for Tony.)
In 1921, an Armenian mail-order bride is shipped to Milwaukee to begin a new life with her photographer husband. Both yearn to emerge from the dark shadows of the Armenian holocaust. As they struggle to redefine family amidst grief and displacement, these kindred strangers realize a love deeper than ever imagined.
