Written By Leon Martell
Directed By Taylor Gilbert

Timmy works in a tanning factory. He is a mooncalf. Timmy transforms his bleak existence through starling and unnatural fantasy. But when two amoral drifters enter Timmy’s life, his dream world becomes a toxic reality. As noxious chemicals ooze, so too do the noxious intentions of the outside world.

“Leon Martell doesn’t play it safe… the playwright spins a realistic tale about blue-collar Americans struggling to maintain their humanity in a rural factory… When ‘Mooncalf’ plunges under the surface of working-class routine, the writing and acting erupt with potent theatrical effects. Apparitions emerge from steaming vats of toxic waste. A pet calf becomes symbolic of polluted nature.” – LA Times

“The Road Theatre’s latest production at its new location in Van Nuys is yet another must-see on your fall theatre-going list… a compelling and striking story… another example of daring and risk-taking contemporary theatre that is quickly becoming the signature of the professional ensemble that is The Road Theatre Company.” – Barry Williams

“… calls attention to a segment of the population that all too often is ignored on stage and screen.” – Daily News

“An amazingly adaptable set by Vince Moore belies the theater’s small space.” – LA Reader
