Buy Tickets Ernest and the Pale Moon

Les Enfants Terrible in association with Pins & Needles Theatre Company
Written by Oliver Lansley
Directed by Emma Earle
Designed by Zoe Squire

Award-winning Theatre Company, Les Enfants Terribles tour their new show, developed in association with Bristol based company, Pins and Needles Productions
Inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Alfred Hitchcock, Ernest and the Pale Moon, is a spine-chilling tale of obsession and murder from the team behind the multi award winning shows ‘The Trench’, ‘The Terrible Infants’ and ‘The Vaudevillains.’ 
Ernest spends his days watching the beautiful young woman who lives in the apartment opposite.  Upon seeing her with another man he is thrown into a jealous rage and driven to murder, though all is not what it may at first seem and slowly Ernest’s guilt sends him on a spiralling descent into madness. 
The piece contains narrative twists and turns, live music, inventive design and physicalstorytelling to provide a thrilling and terrifying experience.
Lansley, a published playwright, also works extensively in television co-creating/writing ITV2's 'FM' and numerous other projects including 'WHITES' which was shown on BBC2 and starred Alan Davies.  He was named a ‘Broadcast Hotshot’s’ by Broadcast magazine and won the ‘Multi-talented’ award at Channel 4’s 4-Talent Awards. 

Duration: 1 hour no interval.
