About Book

Yellow Moon is a modern Bonnie and Clyde tale that follows the fortunes of two teenagers on the run. Silent Leila is an introverted girl who has a passion for celebrity magazines. Stag Lee Macalinden is the deadest of dead-end kids in a dead-end town. They never meant to get mixed up in a murder... but now they need a place to hide.

Yellow Moon explores what it means to live in a celebrity-obsessed world and what it is that defines who you are when you're 17 years old.

The play premiered at the Circle Studio of Citizens' Theatre, Glasgow, in September 2006, and won the 2008 Brain Way Award for Best Play for Young People.
