Want the Moon is an emerging company set up in 2018 by graduates of the University of Leeds. Since then, we’ve produced work performed at festivals and venues all over the UK.


We are strong advocates of new writing, and we believe in creating pieces that will shock and intrigue an audience. We love theatre that defies conventions, particularly dark, modernist works by playwrights looking to explore overlooked areas of humanity. Amongst our many influences, we count writers such as Harold Pinter and Martin McDonagh, directors including Katie Mitchell and Sam Mendes, and companies such as Paines Plough and Worklight Theatre.

Our debut production, “Other People’s Teeth”, was performed at Brighton Fringe, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and Playmill 18 at the King’s Head Theatre. In 2019 we brought our second show, Shadows, to the Tristan Bates Theatre and returned for our second year at the Edinburgh Fringe. As the world starts to reopen after the Covid-19 pandemic, we can finally get to work on our brand new project. More details coming soon...
