By Declan Greene
A fast, funny and heart-breaking story about two young people with nowhere to go.
“Heaven is a trillion light years away. And that's a lot of dark matter, a lot of sin between us...”
Sebastian doesn’t fit in. He smells. He’s obsessed with apocalyptic anime, and he talks to himself.
After a catastrophic fallout with his only friend, Claryssa, he wakes up with an avenging moth in a jar by his bed, and a calling to save the souls of all humanity. So begins the Passion of Sebastian: a journey into a terrifying and starless night.
This revival at the award-winning Hope Mill Theatre (Theatre and Performance Hospital Club Award) will be a Northern premiere for Declan Greene, one of Australia's foremost emerging playwrights (Artist in Residence at Melbourne’s Malthouse Theatre).
MOTH is being supported by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts, the Fidelio Trust, O2 Think Big and the University of Manchester.
