A terrible crime sends Leila and Lee running into the Scottish highlands. They are no Bonnie and Clyde; at its heart, Yellow Moon is a story of two people who are lost and find one another. Lee is an antisocial loner, completely unaware of how isolated he is, who quickly finds himself completely out of his depth. Leila is about as introverted as a person can be, but beneath the silence she dreams of being a celebrity, of being in a story, to give herself the sense of importance and identity she lacks. An inventive lighting rig helped to create this feeling, and a live band helped to keep pacing throughout. A three-part chorus tells the bulk of the story, stepping into roles when required with somewhat variable skill, and while their almost cheerfully detached tone keeps the action from dragging, at times it jars with the tone of the more dramatic moments. The action is shaky at the start but gains momentum; it is to be hoped that the cast gain confidence as the month goes on. The parts of Leila and Lee were played with panache and skill. The set was simplified, mostly kept to a black box, but the flexibility of the cast and the variety of setting kept this from being boring, Yellow Moon blends a harsh, uncompromising reality with beautiful storytelling that turns a sordid tale, built upon violence and mistakes, into a modern-day fairytale.
