The Ninth Moon tells the story of a modern Mary and Joseph (Chloe and Dan) as they begin to construct a family. Aged 20, pregnant, runaways from violence and neglect, they have only love and hope to sustain them. This play charts the 9 moons of their pregnancy and sees a young couple taking their first steps into the adult world.
Here Keene's theme of the role of employment in society is examined in an inversion. It is the people Dan meets in his new job as a labourer who help to build their new family.
