Kim Fahner’s Letters to the Man in the Moon is the story of how one young girl deals with the death of her father in a tragic mining accident. Beyond the immediacy of grief, and of exploring the bond that exists between fathers and daughters, Letters asks us to consider how we are inextricably woven into one another’s lives, and how we manage to navigate those emotional ties when they are tangled in complex ways. It is a play that speaks to the tenacity of the human spirit, and to the ways in which love can transcend time and space.
