James Bolam and Steve John Shepherd star in Bomber’s Moon at Trafalgar Studios 2Bombers Moon


Following a critically acclaimed run at the Park Theatre in 2014, Bomber’s Moon transfers to the Trafalgar Studios 2 this spring.

Starring James Bolan and Steve John Shepherd, William Ivory’s play Bomber’s Moon plays a strictly limited run from 20 April 2015 until 23 May at Trafalgar Studios 2.


Former RAF gunner Jimmy finds his routine disrupted when sensitive care assistant David arrives – and his cantankerous outlook and colourful language seem to be more than David can handle. As Jimmy increasingly snaps back to the adrenaline-fuelled terror of his WWII bombing raids, and David’s new found faith is tested to breaking point, both men discover that a lasting peace is not easily won. With acerbic wit and searing honesty, Bomber’s Moon is a bittersweet tour-de-force, full of gritty realism and razor-sharp humour.


James Bolam is best known for his television work, including New Tricks, Born and Bred, Second Thoughts, The Beiderbecke Connection/Tapes/Affair , Only When I Laugh, When the Boat Comes In and The Likely Lads. His most recent theatre credits include How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Semi Detached, both at Chichester, and Wild Oats at the National.

Steve John Shepherd is best known as Michael Moon in EastEnders and for his breakthrough role as Jo in This Life. His most recent theatre credits include Albion (Bush Theatre), Piaf (Donmar Warehouse & West End) and Five Wives of Maurice Pinder (National Theatre).


The play is by William Ivory screenwriter for hit film Made In Dagenham. His television writing credits include episodes of ITV’s Minder, Common as Muck, The Sins, Night Flight, A Thing Called Love, Faith and Burton and Taylor.

Matt Aston will direct with design by Laura McEwen, lighting design by James Farncombe, sound design by Damian Coldwell and choreography by Emma Annetts.  Dean Sudron will be associate designer and lighting designer at Trafalgar Studios 2.
