An abandoned home. A lost brother. A secret love story.

Curtis has arranged a meeting in a flat of a derelict tower block. Years ago, when he was a child, Curtis lived happily here but, then, tragedy struck and his elder brother died. Now Curtis is seeing his brother’s ghost. With the aid of Gavin and Tommy, fellow members of the right wing political party of which he is a leading figure, Curtis aims to find out why this ghost is haunting him. Things, however, do not go as planned. For a start, there are two squatters now occupying the flat. And one of them has a story to tell. A story that will change Curtis’s life forever.

Moonfleece is an intense and thrilling exploration of memory and identity, in a story which includes themes of racism, homophobia, and how those in authority distort both the truth and the past. It was first performed at Rich Mix, Bethnal Green Road, London, in March 2010.
