REVIEW: The Man and The Moon

The Man and The Moon is a delightful cabaret/play that channels the atmosphere of a boozy, jazzy New York Basement joint whilst regaling you with a wondrous tale of fantasy and romance. Backed by a three-piece band, St John Cowcher tells his tale of living and functioning in ‘grey suburbia’ and how he fell in love with the beautiful silver orb in the sky through original songs and snappy monologues.

Cowcher is stuck living a life he never wanted – he works in the marketing department for a super-company, lives in outer-middle suburbia, attends office barbeques for socialisation, and has to endure the office wanker on an almost daily basis. His life hits home for many creative millennials (myself included!) and will resonate on a level you didn’t expect. From hilariously written witty office observations, to the impeccable characterisation of Phil – believe me, we all know a Phil – Cowcher shines during his accurate satirical songs.

It is clear that Cowcher has a way with words, under the biting satire there lies a charming and fantastical story, told in a poetic language. As Cowcher becomes truly lovestruck, his music changes into lament. The Man and The Moon is a brilliant piece of theatre – it’s funny, clever, and utterly charming. Cowcher is one to watch, with a powerful voice and an affable nature, he gives his full creativity to this work, and it pays off.
