“Beast on the Moon” is a play about a young Armenian couple – two survivors after the 1915 genocide. It is a tender, warm and sensitive story about battling with shadows of the past and with the beast in oneself. Aram Tomasian has escaped from Armenia to the land of his dreams, the United States, and makes a living there as a photographer. With the help of letters and photographs he chooses a bride for himself from his homeland, but when the girl arrives across the ocean, she doesn’t correspond at all to the picture Aram has created in his imagination. The play was first introduced in 1995 at the Humana festival in Louisville, Kentucky. By now it has been produced in around twenty different countries across the world. Having won many prestigious awards, “Beast on the Moon” is Richard Kalinoski’s most famous play and the first to have been produced in Estonia.
