Richard Kalinoski's haunting and poetic play about two immigrants who escape the Armenian genocide in Turkey to seek refuge in America. In 1921, an Armenian mail-order bride is shipped to Milwaukee to begin a new life with her photographer husband. As they struggle to define family amidst their grief and displacement, these kindred strangers find hope, healing, redemption and love. Winner of the American Theatre Critic’s Association Osborn Award and the Khorenatsi Medal, Armenia’s highest cultural award. Aug. 21 – Sept. 8, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. International City Theatre, located in the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, 330 E. Seaside Way, Long Beach, CA 90802;(562) 436-4610; InternationalCityTheatre.org.

"Beast on the Moon is a powerhouse of passion delivered by superb performers under the sensitive direction of ICT Artistic Director caryn desai. The interplay between Travis Leleand and Rachel Weck crackles with tension, affection, and conflict."

"If good intentions were all that mattered, then International City Theatre’s production of Richard Kalinoski’s Beast On The Moon would merit raves. Unfortunately, for this reviewer at least, good intentions do not suffice."
