Howling Moon tells the story of a girl who enters a mystical, magical land where the trees weep and dance, foxes and wolves talk, and strange figures dressed in black speak inner secrets. It may sound good, but that is it.Many aspects of the show are clumsy: the script seems confused, with gaping holes in the narrative and characters proclaiming conflicting facts which do not make sense. Not only this but the dialogue of the script is totally dull and unoriginal. The lead character is completely bland until she becomes completely angry or completely upset; she has no depth and evokes little or no sympathy in the audience.The whole premise of the play is unoriginal and clichéd too. For instance, the set comes to serve as a physical metaphor for the girl’s mental issues, but that idea has been used too many times. The same goes for the idea of people playing the trees in the forest. They waft their arms about and attempt to dance but they all have differing levels of ability and I couldn’t take them seriously.There are only two good things about this production which are the characters of the fox and the wolf, who represent good and evil. The wolf is genuinely scary and the fox energetic and occasionally funny. But as the piece ends the illusion is not maintained, since the characters who had guided you inside do not guide you outside after the piece has finished. After the intrigue of the set quickly wears away this becomes a boring production.
