Moon Man Walk

September 25 – October 3, 2020

While planning his mother’s funeral, Spencer stumbles upon a letter revealing the truth about his estranged father, which sets him on a magical journey through time and space.

Along the way, he falls for a woman he meets on the plane and encounters a mysterious astronaut stranded on the moon. From the Whiting Award–winning playwright James Ijames, Moon Man Walk is a poetic look at how the stories we learn as children shape us as adults.

Ticket sales stop 4 hours prior to curtain time. The virtual lobby is open 30 minutes before the live performances begin. 

A note about the on-demand video available Oct 16–23:

The cast performed Moon Man Walk live on September 25, 2020 at 6 p.m. from—amazingly—four different states. Please note the first five minutes of this on-demand production are technically compromised due to varying internet strength in our artists’ locations. The audio and visual are at times out of synch. We want to share this production in any case, because the design, direction, and acting are all exemplary in their commitment to telling James Ijames’s beautiful play.

Live virtual theater continues to be a big experiment. A.C.T. is proud to be occupying this space, and we thank you for being our audience. 

This performance is made possible in part by The Bernard Osher Foundation and Jewels of Charity, Inc.

All titles, schedules, and artists are subject to change.
