A gruffly poignant and darkly funny play, Ages of the Moon finds old friends Byron and Ames re-united by mutual desperation. Ames’ marriage has broken down and he rings Byron in desperation. Byron travels for three days to see Ames, and over bourbon on ice, they sit, reflect and bicker until fifty years of love, friendship and rivalry are put to the test at the barrel of a gun.
