Meet former RAF gunner Jimmy and his new care assistant David. Both have been through the wars. Whilst Jimmy is fighting his final battle against old age and infirmity, David is desperate to lay his past to rest and build a new future. As Jimmy's memory increasingly snaps him back to the adrenaline-fuelled terror of his WWII bombing raids, David's new found faith is tested to breaking point, as both men fight for a lasting peace.

James Bolam and Steve John Shepherd star in this tour-de-force drama from leading Screenwriter William Ivory (Common as Muck; Made in Dagenham; Truckers, Burton and Taylor), full of gritty realism, wicked black humour and above all a compelling human story.

"Bomber's Moon is explosive theatre… a touching, funny, memorable piece. This unflinching drama is William Ivory on top form."
